New Vatileaks scandal on its way as two Vatican insiders are arrested
Over the weekend, two people, a Spanish priest and an Italian public relations official were arrested over the suspicion of allegedly leaking classified documents from the Vatican.
The woman, Francesca Chaouqui was successively released by prison in exchange of cooperation with authorities. The priest, Msgr Lucio Angel Vallejo Balda is still being held by the Gendarmerie. The two are former members of a Vatican commission.
The arrests come at the eve of the publication of two new books that reportedly concern leaked Vatican information. One of the books, written by journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi, author of the 2012 "Vatileaks" scandal book, will be presented to the press next Wednesday, November 4. Both books will be available in libraries on November 5.
