URGENT ¥¥¥ Vatileaks enquiry report will just be shown to new pope

The Vatican said Monday that a secret report on a leaks scandal in 2012 which revealed intrigue and corruption in the Church would be shown exclusively to the future pope, not to voting cardinals.

"The Holy Father has decided that the documents, which only he has seen, will be exclusively available to his successor," Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said at a press conference.

Italian media reports had suggested cardinals set to vote in a new pope once Benedict XVI has resigned would be given access to the report.
