2012-05-18

The documents discuss the well publicized parties of former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, the testimony of the former secretary to Marcial Maciel, how Angela Merkel was upset when an excommunication was lifted on a Lefebrian bishop, the Pope's bank account, a secret briefing for a meeting with the President of Italy, as well as the cease-fire of the Spanish terrorist group ETA.

These new documents will give more clues to Cardinal Julián Herranz and his commission that is currently investigating the Vatican leak of classified documents.


The Secretary of State is also conducting his own investigation into the leaks as well as the Vatican prosecutor who is working on a criminal investigation.
