Vatican City, November 15 - A computer expert
sentenced to two months in the so-called Vatileaks scandal,
which saw the pope's ex-butler convicted of stealing and leaking
confidential Vatican papers, said Thursday he would appeal the
court decision.
Vatican computer expert Claudio Sciarpelletti, 48,
convicted of facilitating the documents' removal and
circulation, will appeal the sentence, his defence lawyer said
Gianluca Benedetti said.
The same judges who sentenced ex-butler Paolo Gabriele to
one-and-a-half years in prison on October 6 for "aggravated
theft" presided over Sciarpelletti's trial.
Sciarpelletti was found guilty of aiding Gabriele while
working as a computer technician at the Vatican.
Gabriele, a 46-year-old husband and father of three, was
given an 18-month prison sentence following the separate trial
after admitting passing documents to a journalist.
Pope Benedict is widely expected to pardon him.
