Even the Pope is subject to Identity Theft by employees
Vatican: Leak of Documents Is Called a ‘Brutal’ Personal Attack on the Pope
The Vatican on Tuesday denounced the theft of secret papal documents as a “brutal” personal attack on Pope Benedict XVI. The Vatican’s deputy secretary of state, Archbishop Angelo Becciu, left, said in the Vatican’s official newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, that the publication of stolen documents in a recent book by an Italian journalist was a “criminal” act. The newspaper also said the pope’s butler, Paolo Gabriele, who has been accused of leaking the pope’s confidential correspondence, had been in possession of “a large number” of the pope’s private documents. Mr. Gabriele, 46, was arrested last week and charged with theft. The Vatican said a cardinals commission was investigating whether others were involved.
