Statement on accusations made by Chaouqui

(Vatican Radio) The Director of the Vatican Press Office, Father Federico Lombardi, SJ, has released a statement concerning some statements made by Francesco Immacolata Chaouqui against Archbishop Angelo Giovanni Becciu, the Substitute of the Secretary of State, released during the ongoing trial at the Vatican for the appropriation and illicit disclosure of confidential documents:

“On the occasion of the last hearing in the trial taking place in the Vatican for the publication of confidential documents (May 24), Dr Francesca Immacolata Chaouqui has made some statements, of which the press has taken notice, in which she made serious charges against the person of the Substitute of the Secretary of State, of having acting unfairly towards her. Such accusations, after the hearing, were repeated in an even more serious way and spread by Facebook by the accused [Chaouqui]. It has therefore become necessary—without desiring in any way to condition the action of the Court—to deny, in a most absolute way, such accusations and to state that, since they are calumnious affirmations, they are absolutely unacceptable, and subject to legal action.”
