Vatileaks 2. Fittipaldi questioned in the vatican. Nuzzi declines
That State “does not recognize the freedom of the press,” said the author of Via Crucis. The other reporter claimed professional secrecy. The procedure
The journalists Emiliano Fittipaldi and Gianluigi Nuzzi, at the center of the new Vatileaks case due to the publication of two books of investigation that shed light on the finances of the Church, called by the promoter of justice in the Vatican, have made differing choices. Fittipaldi, author of Avarizia, on 16 November presented himself for questioning in the Vatican and invoked the professional secrecy as mandated by Italian law. Instead Nuzzi did not go. The legal proceedings of the Vatican State provide imprisonment from four to eight years for the disclosure of such confidential information.
