Agenda of the week: the deadline to appeal the Vatileaks II sentence

The week begins with everyone's eye on the Vatileaks II case, since the accused are able to appeal the sentence until Tuesday. Of the five defendants involved in the case, three have been acquitted and two convicted: Lucio Angel Vallejo and Francesca Chaouqui. However, the sentence for Francesca will be suspended if in the next five years she does not commit any crime. "The Court has found me not guilty ..." Besides this, it is expected to be a seemingly quiet week at the Vatican. Pope Francis does not have any public event planned on his agenda for the moment, although there could always be surprises. While the week is quiet, he never fails to appear at his traditional Sunday Angelus with pilgrims, defying the heat and humidity in the Eternal City. JRB RR VM -PR Up:AC
