Vatileaks report available to pope, but likely not read yet

Rome, March 18 - The hefty Vatileaks dossier is "available" for Pope Francis to review, but the newly elected pontiff likely has "other matters to attend to" during his first days in office, Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said on Monday. "I would be very surprised if he has dedicated time to reading it these last few days," Lombardi said at a press conference. Francis' predecessor Benedict XVI commissioned three elder cardinals to compile a report on the so-called Vatileaks scandal, which saw the pope's ex-butler convicted of stealing and leaking confidential Vatican papers last year. The result, a 300-page, two-volume dossier, was presented to Benedict last fall. Photo: Benedict with ex-butler Paolo Gabriele
