"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.

"The formal questioning will be the last part of the investigation stage and is expected to be completed in about 10 days.”

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.

"It is anticipated that the committee will meet with the Pope next week to present the results of their research. This will be the last week of work. Then the Pope will be able to draw his own conclusions.”

At this point, the Vatican's spokesman has denied that three other accomplices worked with Gabriele in the leaking of confidential documents.
