Two arrested OVERVATICAN leaks; WORLD BULLETINS.

A MONSIGNOR and a woman have been arrested in the probe of yet another leak of confidential information and documents, the Vatican has said.

A statement from the Holy See's press office said that Vatican prosecutors yesterday upheld the arrests of the two, who had been interrogated over the weekend.

It identified the woman as Francesca Chaouqui and the monsignor as the Rev Lucio Angel Vallejo Balda.

The monsignor is still a Vatican employee while Chaouqui had served on a financial reform commission that had been set up by Pope Francis in 2013 as part of his drive to reform the Holy See's finances. Vallejo Balda had also served on the commission, now defunct.
