(ANSA) - Vatican City, August 30 - Lawyer Carlo Fusco has
quit as a defence lawyer for Paolo Gabriele, Pope Benedict XVI's
former butler who has been charged with stealing secret papal
documents.
Fusco cited "differences" with others on the defence team
in confirming Thursday that he was quitting the case.
Gabriele was arrested last May and charged with stealing
documents that were than leaked to the press.
A second defence lawyer, Cristiana Arru, is still on the
case.
But sources tell ANSA that Arru is "considering" what to
do.
Also indicted in the case is IT expert Claudio
Sciarpelletti, who stand trial for aiding and abetting Gabriele.
There has been speculation among Vatican experts and the
media that Gabriele is a pawn of a power struggle between
cardinals.
Gabriele reportedly told prosecutors that "evil and
corruption everywhere in the Church" had prompted him to act.
