Vatileaks: Prosecutors recommend 3 years and 9 months for PR and 3 years and 1 month for priest

2016-07-04

The prosecutor of the "Vatileaks II” trail has petitioned his request for the sentencing of the accused.

He considers Francesca Chaouqui responsible as a conspirator for the plot and has recommended that she serve 3 years and 9 months in prison.

For Lucio Angel Vallejo Balda, 3 years and 1 month of imprisonment. The prosecutor believes that he was the engine of this "conspiracy.”

For Nicola Maio to serve 1 year and 9 months in prison because of his limited responsibility and involvement during the events.

A 1-year jail term is recommended for Journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi.

The prosecutor has only asked for the acquittal of the other journalist involved, Emiliano Fittipaldi, for lack of evidence.

The prosecution accuses Chaouqui, Vallejo and Maio of forming a criminal association. They consider that the three formed a structure within the Vatican State to disseminate information. For the prosecutor, this association has been "a danger to public order and security for the Vatican.”

He says that since June 2013, in light of the evidence that surfaced, they kept to themselves and sought to "operate in the shadows and in secret.”

For the prosecution, the journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi is a moral accomplice to the crime. He is not guilty of publishing the documents. However, he is guilty of his complicity in disclosing them.

In the case of Nuzzi, the prosecution considers that his complacency is proven given the large number of information exchanged. In the case of Fittipaldi, the prosecution cannot find any evidence of his active participation in the events.
