Text size Aa Aa

The “Vatileaks” scandal surrounding the world headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church has taken another turn with the Vatican ordering the trial of the disgraced former papal butler Paolo Gabriele, and announcing he had a computer-savvy accomplice.

He and the alleged accomplice, Claudio Sciarpelletti, will both face trial for theft after Gabriele allegedly admitted leaking Vatican secrets. He is also accused of stealing a 100,000 dollar cheque made out to the Pope.
