Cardinal Re says Vatican was unaware of activities of Archbishop Wielgus

.- The Holy See was unaware of the true reach of the espionage activity of Archbishop Wielgus until the end of last week, Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re, the Prefect of the Congregation of Bishops, stated on Monday in the Italian newspaper "Corriere della Sera."  

"When Monsignor Wielgus was named, we were unaware of his collaboration with the communist secret service," declared Cardinal Re.  

The Prelate explained that Archbishop Wielgus, in view of his relations with the old communist secret service, committed two large errors: on the one hand he publicly denied - up to this past Friday - his collaboration, and he also hid important information from the Vatican during his appointment process.

The Archbishop resigned as Archbishop of Warsaw just two days after being installed as the Archdiocese’s ordinary.
