Vatican to Try Five, Including Reporters, Over Leaks Scandal

Gavin Jones of Reuters reports, “The Vatican on Saturday ordered five people, including two Italian journalists, to stand trial for leaking and publishing secret documents.” The trial stems from the publication of two books that depict Pope Francis as battling corruption in an effort to reform the Vatican, using information that should not have been accessible. Gianluigi Nuzzi, author of one of the books, said, “If they think they can silence me they are following the wrong path, because after me other reporters will tell the facts and the information will not stop.”
