Pope's Butler Charged Over Leaks Scandal

Saturday, 26 May 2012 08:37 AM EDT

Vatican magistrates on Saturday formally charged Pope Benedict's butler with illegal possession of secret documents and said a wider investigation would take place to see if he had any accomplices who helped him leak them.

A statement referred to Paolo Gabriele, 46, who was Benedict's butler until he was arrested on Wednesday, as "the defendant". It said a preliminary investigation had been upgraded to a "formal investigation," meaning he had been formally charged.
