The Vatican is a sovereign city-state and the two journalists are Italian citizens. Unless the journalists agree to be questioned by the Vatican, the Holy See would have to ask Italian investigators to do it, a complicated and lengthy diplomatic process.

    As shown by these two books, this pope’s “reform” was replacing the old crooks with his own crooks. “Increasing power for Vatican financial regulators” means men appointed by this pope will be watching other men appointed by this pope. Any questionable transactions will be adjudicated by other men appointed by this pope while the final decisions will be made by this pope.

    “The Vatican has accused the authors of trying to reap financial advantages from receiving stolen documents.”

    But they are not denying that anything in the books in question was untrue or misrepresented.

    Hi Larry,
    Exactly.

    “The Vatican has condemned the books because it says they were based on stolen documents and give only a “partial and tendentious” version of events.”

    No material defense, only legalistic and procedural objections.
    It is past time to convert the Vatican into a mere tourist attraction. The secret society and it’s pretend “state” status, is an embarrassment for all concerned.
    The Holy Roman Empire is DEAD!
