Vatican City, October 12 - The Vatican has received
no Canadian extradition request for former Washington nunciature
staffer Msgr Carlo Alberto Capella, nor has the Vatican set a
trial for him on charges of posessing child pornography, Vatican
Spokesman Greg Burke said Thursday, denying "false" reports.
"The investigation requires international collaboration and
is not yet over," Burke said.
Well-informed sources told ANSA earlier that Capella, who is
wanted by Canadian authorities for possessing and distributing
kiddy porn, won't be extradited to Canada but will instead be
tried in the Vatican.
Capella is currently being held in the Vatican.
The Vatican has cited his diplomatic immunity against the
Canadian warrant, the sources said.
Earlier this month Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Piero
Parolin said Capella's case was a "very painful affair, a great
trial for all those who are involved".
He said "we are treating the case with the utmost
commitment, the utmost seriousness".
It is "premature", he said, to say more on the case, which is
protected by confidentiality to "protect the truth and justice".
Canada last month issued the arrest warrant for Capella, who
is in the Vatican having been recalled from Washington at the
beginning of September.
Police in the Canadian town of Windsor have accused him of
possessing and distributing kiddy porn he allegedly downloaded
during a trip to Canada on December 24-27.
