Vatican says it has caught person who leaked documents
epa03235408 A photo dated 16 June 2010 of the pontiff's staff member Paolo Gabriele (L, front), sitting beside the driver of the 'Popemobile' with Pope Benedict XVI (C) being driven on St. Peter's Square, Vatican city. Others are not identified. The Vatican said 25 May that its police is holding a suspect in connection with the 'illegal' possession of classified documents. A person was at the disposal of the Vatican magistrates for ulterior clarification, papal spokesman Father Federico Lombardi was quoted as saying by the ANSA news agency. Lombardi's announcement came a day after the board of the Holy See's bank, the Institute for the Works of Religion (IOR), unanimously voted to dismiss its president, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, in a decision reportedly linked to the leaking of Vatican documents. The identification of the person, who Lombardi did not name, but whom the Italian daily Il Foglio identified as a pontiff's domestic staff member named Paolo Gabriele, follows an investigation by the Vatican's Gendarmerie corps into the leaking of several documents, including confidential letters written to Pope Benedict XVI.
