2016-04-13

Today, Gianluigi Nuzzi has appeared in the Vatican court, he is one of the two journalists accused in the case Vatileaks 2.

During the interrogation, the prosecutor has reconstructed the exchange of messages between Gianluigi Nuzzi and the priest Lucio Ángel Vallejo Balda, but has not shown that the journalist pressed the priest for documents.

"He was a person who informed me about the  abnormalities that prevented the change (in the Vatican),” Nuzzi said. "He helped me edit the text” from the book, in order to supplement and explain its contents.

Nuzzi has confirmed that he was introduced to the accused by Francesca Chaouqui, but he says that he did not speak to her about the book because he had his reservations about the project.

Regarding the content of the published documents, he says that "it is not about state secrets. I have not endangered the safety of the Pope. I have not touched the fundamental interests of Vatican City State.”

Indeed, Gianluigi Nuzzi is accused of having "illegitimately appropriated and revealed news and documents relating to the fundamental interests of the Holy See and the State.”
