Francis hasn't replied to Vallejo Balda

Prelate serving 18 months in Vatileaks 2 case

(ANSA) - Rome, October 11 - Pope Francis has yet to respond to a request to pardon for Vatileaks culprit Bishop Lucio Vallejo Balda, sources said Tuesday.
    The Spanish prelate is serving 18 months in a Vatican prison after being found guilty in July of leaking confidential Holy See documents to reporters in the so-called Vatileaks 2 scandal.
    Francis' predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, pardoned his former butler Paolo Gabriel after he was found guilty of leaking confidential material and sentenced to a year and a half in prison.
