Vatican City – “Disguised Criminal Pronouncements”. Polish Cardinal Stanislaus Dziwisz He responds in a very harsh manner to the “very reckless statements” of Peter Orlandibrother Emanuela Orlandi Through the telecast he suggested that Wojtyla In the evening, he went out of the Vatican in disguise with other priests, “and certainly did not go to bless homes.”
Emanuela Orlandi, her brother Pietro 8 hours in the Vatican: «I’ve called all the names, something must come out»
«These are loud accusations against the account of Pope John Paul II, regarding the bitter and painful story of his sister, Emanuela. Needless to say – Dziwisz asserted in a note issued in the evening – that the above insinuations, which he believed originated from dodgy circles of the Roman underworld, and which are now given the guise of show, are in fact false accusations from beginning to end, unrealistic and ludicrous. Within the limits of comedy, if not tragic, they themselves are criminals ».
The Polish Cardinal, who was John Paul II’s personal secretary, believed that “a gigantic crime has been committed against Emanuela and her family, but it is criminal to take advantage of it with an uncontrollable shout aimed at discrediting people in advance and environments worthy of universal respect until proven otherwise”.
Emanuela Orlandi, her brother in the Vatican: “I saw the will to clarify without underestimating anyone”
The Cardinal recalled “the inexpressible pain of a family who had not heard news of one of their daughters in 40 years (something that deserves all the respect, all the attention, all the closeness). Just as one cannot, in good conscience, not wish that the truth of this painful story finally emerges from the whirlpool Misdirections, myths and looting ».
“As Personal Secretary to Pope John Paul II – continued – I can testify, without fear of denial, that from the first moment the Holy Father took charge of the case, acted and made others act until it had a happy outcome, never encouraged any act of concealment, He has always shown affection, closeness and assistance in the most varied way to the Emanuela family.I remain committed to these positions, hoping that they will be corrected by all actors and I hope that Italy, the cradle of universal law, can through its legal system supervise the right to good name for those who are no longer exist today, but who is watching and interceding from above.”
