FR. FEDERICO LOMBARDI 

Vatican Spokesperson 
"The Holy Father has decided that the contents of this report which are known only by His Holiness, will remain at the disposition of the new pontiff.” 

The commission is composed by Spanish Cardinal Julian Herranz, Slovak Jozef Tomko, and Italian Salvatorre De Giorgi, all over the age of 80. 

It was created in April, after the theft and release of private papal documents. The findings took several months to compile and were handed to the Pope in two reports, one completed in July and the other in December. 

The audience with the Pope on Monday was the end of the commission's work on the matter.
