(ANSA) - Vatican City, August 13 - The Vatican on Monday
said that investigators found a check for 100,000 euros made out
to Pope Benedict XVI, a gold nugget and a 1581 edition of the
Aeneid in a house search of the pope's butler Paolo Gabriele.
The items were all gifts to the pope, the Vatican said.
It was not made known how or why Gabriele came into
possession of the items. Vatican Spokesman Federico Lombardi
said it was unlikely they were taken for money.
"I haven't heard anyone, not even the judges, speak of an
economic motive," he said.
Gabriele, who it was announced Monday is being indicted for
aggravated theft, was arrested in May after he was found in
possession of secret Vatican documents.
The seized items announced Monday are part of an
investigation spanning over two months into the case of leaked
documents dubbed VatiLeaks by the Italian press.
The investigation is still ongoing.
