Vatileaks: Pope's former butler had more than a thousand sensitive documents


According to the Vatican's police department, the  documents were mixed with newspaper clippings and printed articles, so they would go unnoticed.
Some of those documents dealt with the private life of the Pope. Others were from the Secretariat of State and yet another group had a German stamp on them with the word: 'destroy.'

Vatican spokesman

"The documents were addressed to the Holy Father and to Vatican departments. It deals with correspondence between the Pope and Church authorities.”

Despite allegations of mistreatment, the police officer who took the stand said the department was ordered to treat Paolo Gabriele in the best way possible. He added that when the butler was released from prison, he thanked them for the way he and his family were treated.

The trial is scheduled to end on Saturday October 6th. That's also the day when the Pope's former will hear his sentence.
