Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

"The judge believes that the information gathering phase should end. In the meantime, things still need to be sorted out, so there will be an extension and he will remain in custody for more days, even though the 50 day period has already passed.”

During this extension period the investigation on the confiscated Papal documents will be completed. Then, more people will be interviewed, and that includes questioning the Pope's butler once again.

If the judge decides there will be a trial, neither the trial nor the verdict would take place before the month of October.
 
In addition, the commission of three cardinals who were assigned to work on the Vatileaks investigation, will finish a report on the matter this week. The commission is planning on sending the report to the Pope by next week.
