Pope to seek immunity and protection from Italian President

POPE BENEDICT TO SEEK IMMUNITY AND PROTECTION FROM ITALIAN PRESIDENT GIORGIO NAPOLITANO ON FEBRUARY 23
Posted on February 14, 2013 by itccs
International Tribunal calls on Napolitano to “not collude in criminality”, and announces global campaign to occupy Vatican property and launch human rights inquiry in Italy
Rome (9 am local time):

Pope Benedict, Joseph Ratzinger, has scheduled a meeting with Italian President Giorgio Napolitano for Saturday, February 23 to discuss securing protection and immunity from prosecution from the Italian government, according to Italian media sources.

Ratzinger’s meeting follows upon the apparent receipt by the Vatican of a diplomatic note from an undisclosed European government on February 4, stating its intention to issue an arrest warrant for Ratzinger, who resigned from his pontificate less than a week later.

In response to the February 23 meeting, the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS), through its field Secretary, Rev. Kevin Annett, has written to President Napolitano, asking him to refrain from assisting Ratzinger in evading justice.

The ITCCS letter states, in part,

“I need not remind you, Mr. President, that under international law and treaties that have been ratified by Italy, you and your government are forbidden from granting such protection to those like Joseph Ratzinger who have aided and abetted criminal actions, such as ordering Bishops and Cardinals in America and elsewhere to protect known child rapists among their clergy.

“Your obligation to the Vatican through the Lateran Treaty does not negate or nullify the requirements of these higher moral and international laws; nor does it require that you give any protection or immunity to a single individual like Joseph Ratzinger, especially after he has left his papal office.”
A copy of the complete text of the ITCCS letter follows.

In response to the documented crimes of child torture, trafficking and genocide linked to Pope Benedict and Vatican officials, the ITCCS will be sponsoring a series of ongoing protests and occupations of Roman Catholic churches and offices through its affiliates around the world beginning in Easter week, March 24-31, 2013, and continuing indefinitely.

These actions will accompany the legal efforts to bring Joseph Ratzinger and other Vatican officials to trial for their proven complicity in crimes against humanity and criminal conspiracy.
The Easter Reclamation Campaign will seize church property and assets to prevent their use by child raping priests, who are protected under Catholic canon law. Citizens have this right to defend their communities and children when the authorities refuse to do so, under international law.

Rev. Kevin Annett and an official delegation from the ITCCS Central Office will also be convening a formal human rights inquiry in Rome commencing the week of May 13, 2013, to consider further charges against the Vatican and its new Pope for crimes against humanity and obstruction of justice.
Rev. Annett and his delegation will be working with organizations across Italy in this investigation. In 2009 and 2010, he held rallies outside the Vatican and met with media and human rights groups across Italy to charge the Vatican with the death of more than 50,000 aboriginal children in Canada.

An Open Letter and Appeal to Giorgio Napolitano, President of the Republic of Italy from Rev. Kevin D. Annett, Secretary of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State

14 February, 2013
Al Presdente della Repubblica Italiana Giorgio Napolitano
Presidenza della Repubblica
c/o Palazzo del Quirinale
00187 Roma
Italia

Dear President Napolitano,

On behalf of our Tribunal and people of conscience everywhere, and of the millions of victims of church abuse, I am making an appeal to you regarding your upcoming meeting with Joseph Ratzinger, who will retire soon as Pope Benedict, the Pontiff of the Church of Rome.
Our understanding is that, in the wake of pressure to have him resign his office because of his proven complicity in concealing child trafficking in his church and other crimes against humanity, Joseph Ratzinger is seeking the assistance of the Italian government in securing protection and immunity from legal prosecution.

I need not remind you, Mr. President, that under international law and treaties that have been ratified by Italy, you and your government are forbidden from granting such protection to those like Jospeh Ratzinger who have aided and abetted criminal actions, such as ordering Bishops and Cardinals in America and elsewhere to protect known child rapists among their clergy.

Your obligation to the Vatican through the Lateran Treaties does not negate or nullify the requirements of these higher moral and international laws; nor does it require that you give any protection or immunity to a single individual like Joseph Ratzinger, especially after he has left his papal office.

The need for you to abide by international law and not be seen to collude with Joseph Ratzinger is even more true when one considers the enormity of the crimes of which the Vatican and its highest officials are clearly guilty, according to considerable evidence gathered and documented by our Tribunal and other groups, and acknowledged by many governments.

In Canada alone, the Roman Catholic Church and its Vatican agents have been found guilty of responsibility for genocide and the deaths of at least 50,000 aboriginal child children in the Jesuit-initiated Indian residential school system, that operated until 1996.

In Ireland, more than 10,000 women suffered and were exploited in the Catholic-run Magdalene Laundries, where many of them died. Similar church-run institutions all over the world have caused enormous mortality, disease and ruination for millions of children. And yet the church has never been held accountable or prosecuted for these deaths and the theft of enormous wealth from entire nations.
With the recent initiative of at least one European government and a host of lawyers to bring Joseph Ratzinger and other church officials to trial for these crimes, we feel it is incumbent on you neither to assist nor to be seen to assist or condone the attempt by him to evade, obstruct or delay justice, lest you open yourself to a charge of being an accessory to a crime.

On behalf of our Tribunal and of many people who cannot speak, I call on you to stand on the law of nations and humanity, and offer no support or protection to Joseph Ratzinger or his accessories in their efforts to evade responsibility for their proven crimes.

I look forward to your reply, and to discussing this with you more when I visit your country in May with a human rights delegation to investigate this matter more closely.
Sincerely,

Kevin D. Annett, M.A., M.Div.
Secretary, The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State
Central Office, Brussels

  1. “The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State” is the only source for this. Despite the name, they are not a governmental organization. They are a private, anti-Catholic organization. The Italian news sites say that the two are meeting (which seems innocuous), and nothing more.This falls into the Weekly World News category.

  2. I also shared the video from msnbc where the commentators are discussing the Pope asked Italian President for Immunity. So now we know that ITCCS is not the only one talking about Pope seeking Immunity. Not sure if you saw it, but here is the link:

    https://loveistheonlytruth.wordpress.com/2013/02/14/breaking-news-pope-benedict-to-seek-immunity-and-protection-from-italian-president-child-for-torture/

    Now if you do not believe the claims of ITCCS then all I can say is, time will tell. We have seen millions of stories worldwide where the priests have been found guilty of molesting children and Vatican has covered it all upto now. Please do your own research if you need to regarding the 50,000 Aboriginal children who were sacrificed in the Vatican premises and lay buried there in Canada. The mainstream also briefly covered it and so it remains a fact but the Vatican had not been charged, until now. Whether the Pope will eventually be arrested, remains to be seen, but I hope u will agree that him resigning from his position was once in a 600 years event..

  3. I’m not sure what exactly you are promoting, but find here the nature of the man behind this farce: http://wp.me/p3d1j9-i

  4. I hope we are both promoting the Truth..atleast with a Conscious Intention with what that Resonates. I checked out your opinion on Mr. Annett but I will not judge a man by a court decision as I know it can be manipulated. I will only judge, if at all, by someones actions and so goes the same for The Vatican. Any fight against the Vatican Crimes and their inhumane practices is a good fight.

    Anyhow, if there is any credibility to ITCCS then it shall come in front of all peoples eyes when its time has come. Until then, we continue to promote awareness to the Vatican Crimes.

    • “Any fight” appears extremist to me. Sometimes there is a fight where there is no fight. A court verdict with numerous witnesses does not hold water because it can be manipulated, but Annett’s witness stands. I would encourage you to go back and read the so-called press release detailing why the Pope abdicated/resigned. Look at the dates, claims and inherent inconsistencies (better you find them). Place them against the earlier link … and then visit this page where you will find the rest of the links that are not “court” procedures: wp.me/p3d1j9-G

  5. Any fight appears extremist to you? So fight against evil is also Extremism? Any fight is extremist when one takes to violence. Silence against evil only encourages evil.

    For me this is a an information war which the puppet mainstream media has been generally suppressing by not giving the attention it deserves by not providing adequate coverage. However even the mainstream has been forced to “discretely” report many cases of molestation of children by the churches all over the world and the use of secretive Vatican banks to launder money. I can understand the vendetta then against Annett by The Powers That Be/Were for taking them on. itccs has no athourity on its own but if it takes the due course of action through the ICC and if the ICC and takes according action it becomes legit. Recently there has been spate of charges against the Vatican but instead the pope openly chooses to hide in Vatican instead as being duly reported. Can you explain to me why he seeks protection from the Italian President?

    Also I understand your concern is the legitimacy of Annett and itccs but to me the bigger concern is the crimes committed by the powers in Vatican over the years. Here is a link from wikipedia about the human remains of genocide of Mohawk (aboriginal) children that were found in the Church premises in Canada: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Indian_residential_school_system#Discovery_of_Human_Remains_at_Mohawk_Institute_in_Brantford.2C_Ontario and this link about the Canadian Indian residential school system run by the Church and closed in 1970s: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_Indian_residential_school_system

    • Woah … I’m not sure you are reading that well. The Church referred to here is NOT the Roman Catholic Church, in case it was not stated on the site you read! It refers to the UNITED CHURCH OF CANADA. There is no connection with the Vatican at all. Just for education purposes, it is not everywhere you see the name Church that the Cathoic Church is signified – Check. I happen to know a little history of that – where again Annett sought to take the glory when the woman behind it all died, to the point of even forging her signature. This is the Church at which he was a minister until he was sacked – over acts that you seem to think do not diminish his credibility. By the way, you know anyone writes on Wikipedia, right? I can simply transfer anything on Annett for instance, so you can read and cite! The linking of the Roman Catholic Church to that episode would make me immediately see the author as Kevin Daniel Annett. Church the Canadian government’s website instead …

      >>Can you explain to me why he seeks protection from the Italian President?<<
      I couldn't but help laughing. You seriously think he is seeking protection? Woah, then something is terribly wrong in whatever you are getting from wherever! If as Pope he didn't need protection, do you think he would have resigned if he needed one? Or do you think the claims of Annett – even if indeed he did what he claimed – were sufficient to rouse the Pope from a slumber? Then you must be living in a dream world. You guys must think this Kevin more than he has ever dreamed to be – which is "very big".

      At the risk of repeating myself, Kevin did not as much as send ANYTHING to the Vatican, and is now looking for someone to help deliver whatever he calls it to the Pope in the Vatican. If you believe him so much, you might want to volunteer and do that for him. He is posting on a blog under another name here (http://lucas2012infos.wordpress.com/2013/02/22/urgent-call-from-kevin-annett-itccs-org-22-february-2013/).

      That apart, you surprise me if ever you think that the mainstream media "discretely" reports anything Catholic when it's negative! Has any religious body, Christian or not, received worse bad press than the Catholic Church? Perhaps you don't follow … I do. I have had to personally correct certain reports due to things I know and follow – even if they do so without apology!

      Charge of money-laundering? There was none. Check the records again: banking was done according to certain principles not in agreement with EU reguations – an old style of things… EU regulations are still "new", but those have long been resolved and "updated" so why the noise?

      Look, seriously, there is a difference between fiction and fact: it is yours to choose. Follow what you will – I can't change that for you. Looking at the blog's name, I thought truth was sought …

  6. Really? I am not reading well? Ok on the wiki page it says this in the History section: “the schools were run by churches of various denominations — about 60 per cent by Roman Catholics, and 30 per cent by the Anglican Church of Canada and the United Church of Canada, along with its pre-1925 predecessors, Presbyterian, Congregationalist and Methodist churches”

    Now I know very well that wiki is not the place which always give all accurate information. However when it is run privately, multi million dollar org and the folks running it would give some attention when something of this nature is reported against the biggest, richest most secretive organization in the world. It is normally the information that is damaging to these organizations that is corrupted, not otherwise.

    Also if you speak of truth, please do a simple google search on the reported cases of child sex abuse. You will find plenty within mainstream as well. What often happens is msm does not connect the dots to provide complete coverage so the aware are left to do it for themselves.

    • MONEY LAUNDERING:
      Here is what the Reuters article you referred me to says:
      >>It was added to the list because it was considered vulnerable to money-laundering and had recently established programs to prevent it, a State Department official said.
      “To be considered a jurisdiction of concern merely indicates that there is a vulnerability to a financial system by money launderers. With the large volumes of international currency that goes through the Holy See, it is a system that makes it vulnerable as a potential money-laundering center,” Susan Pittman of the State Department’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement, told Reuters.
      Last year, the Vatican adapted internal laws to comply with international standards on financial crime.<>Vatican police, who already know the pope and his habits, will be able to guarantee his privacy and security and not have to entrust it to a foreign police force, which would be necessary if he moved to another country.
      “I see a big problem if he would go anywhere else. I’m thinking in terms of his personal security, his safety. We don’t have a secret service that can devote huge resources (like they do) to ex-presidents,” the official said.
      Another consideration was that if the pope did move permanently to another country, living in seclusion in a monastery in his native Germany, for example, the location might become a place of pilgrimage.<<

      Check your news … I say again

      • For some reason, this repeated itself that not all what I sent appeared.
        I noted: You do ont seek protection where a protection already exists – which nullifies the claims of Annett.
        HP article was doctored. Find the actual Reuters article here (http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2013/02/15/ex-pope-benedict-will-have-security-and-immunity-by-remaining-in-the-vatican/). Vatican officials don’t speak on conditions of anonymity, and even at that, the three reasons supposedly given by the so-called official (as appeared in the earlier response), have nothing like that.

      • Vatican is “vulnerable” to money laundering by not implementing the security features that are required by International Law to discourage money laundering.

        This should make you laugh my friend. Vatican Bank with all its huge slush funds for the biggest politicians in the world would not be complicit in the Money Laundering itself. Naww! It is a just victim by not reporting huge chunks of money being transferred to its accounts. This should make you laugh. The biggest bank is just “lazy” to implement security measure right?

        That is how MSM reports misadventures of this rich. If you are not careful, they will make the hunter look like a victim. Hope you can begin to read between the lines. If it it was a small broker who would become a “Victim” of money laundering, would be sitting in jail.

        And if the pope is such a great person, why would he need a secret service type protection after retirement? I thought being a man of god would mean being loved by all, wouldn’t it? Do all priests move around like politicians now? And I wonder how hard it is to arrange a security in another country! Hmmm. He could not come up with his own money to arrange one I guess..

        • Look Kevin, come out and be you. If Kevin has bad character, it does not matter. But others do, and it matters.
          You call to evidence articles, then you denounce them as reporting in favor of the rich and powerful – what they have almost never done for the Catholic Church. I’m waiting for you to give the list of the “rich and powerful” who put money in the Vatican bank. I happen to know who puts money in the Vatican bank that is not Vatican – and they are not individuals, neither are they civil entities.
          >>> I thought being a man of god would mean being loved by all, wouldn’t it?<<< Evidence is to the contrary. Too many nutcases like you who would take a shot at a man of God just because that is what he is.
          Take your sorry self out of what you do not know – and please expunge from your twisted mind all the conspiracy stories forming therein. If you read my posts, I have successfully shown that:
          1. You are without cridibility as you want the world to believe
          2. There was nothing like a seeking of immunity as you claimed. You don't keek what is already existing.
          3. Claims of money-laundering are lacking anywhere
          4. You are sick and need psychiatric help.

          I will pray for you – get out of the world in your head and live in the real world.

  7. If for say itccs statement is true and they have been able to forge aliance with ICC then it makes perfect sense that he retires and hides in Vatican as he will not be able to continue travel for his duties as a Pope.

    • Yet there is nothing at the ICC – you can check with them. I can give you the help if you need it.

      • So noone takes a hit from the mercenaries of Vatican! I would imagine something of this magnitude cannot be done openly as the pressure is implied through channels. That is why itccs did not name which country it is using as its affiliate. itccs itself has no recognized authority so it can speak openly, with a lesser risk of being targetted.

        • Look Kevin, come out and be you. If Kevin has bad character, it does not matter. But others do, and it matters.

  8. Oh, by the way, I discovered this blog here is operated by the same person operating this (http://lucas2012infos.wordpress.com/2013/02/22/urgent-call-from-kevin-annett-itccs-org-22-february-2013/). I wonder how it took me so long!

  9. Lol. I see how your logic works. Anyone who claims to be on the same side as Kevin Annett IS Kevin Annett. Like the person who posts in lucas2012info blog.

    Show me proof Kevin Annett was involved in genocide, child sex abuse, money laundering. I showed you the same for the Vatican yet you continue to lick their sorry ass.

    If the nutcases like me are threat to pope, then trust me he do not need security.

    Honestly, you claim to be following up with lot of stuff written about the Vatican but the stuff I shared wth you, you act like you read it for the first time. You are incapable of reading between the lines which shows you are largely unaware of what is going on. Perhaps you are a paid shill of the Vatican who want to discredit Kevin Annett in the alternate circles. Trust me you do a pathetic job.

    I shared the media reports as you asked me where did they ever report. Well they reported. As it can be seen clearly, they are never truthful and clear in their reporting about Vatican crimes, but that do not people ppl cannot see the truth if they choose to. I only shared one link, There are others, NBC, Guadrian, EUTimes etc reporting on these crimes. It is not my job to send u all the links If you want to find the truth, find urself.

    This is my blog and I share the Truth that I know it is. No need for you to comment if you do not agree.

    Peace!

    • The article I shared with you does reports Money Laundering and Pope seeking Protection. They only write these articles in such a way that avg person reading it would think it is not a big deal. But now cmon, dont we know who owns media?

      • >>>The article I shared with you does reports Money Laundering and Pope seeking Protection.<<>>They only write these articles in such a way that avg person reading it would think it is not a big deal.<<< Thanks for calling me an average person. You are the only above average person in the whole wide world. Just remember: a visit to any psychiatric home will affirm to you that psychiatric persons think they are the most intelligent and smart persons in the world. Perhaps you belong there?

      • “The article I shared with you does reports Money Laundering and Pope seeking Protection.” It does not exist. Mind quoting for me where on earth it says that? If you are well informed as you claim, there is never any need for any more “immunity” or protection, following from accords that were reached at the turn of the previous century. That nullifies whatever claims you make. If EVER there is any standard report of such, it only demonstrates the degree of ignorance of such a person.

        “They only write these articles in such a way that avg person reading it would think it is not a big deal.” Thanks for calling me an average person. You are the only above average person in the whole wide world. Just remember: a visit to any psychiatric home will affirm to you that psychiatric persons think they are the most intelligent and smart persons in the world. Perhaps you belong there?

        • Here are the two headlines from the articles I shared earlier for the benefit of my friend here who is a challenged reader.

          1. U.S. adds Vatican to money-laundering ‘concern’ list
          2, Pope Immunity: Vatican Will Protect Benedict From Sexual Abuse Prosecution

        • BTW, I never called you average. That would be a huge upgrade for you..

        • Thank you for putting the headlines, which obviously should be for the writer of this article that we have been commenting upon: “Ex-Pope Benedict will have security and immunity by remaining in the Vatican” which is the stating of the fact from the original article from where yours – obviously the more authentic than the original writer which says “Pope Immunity: Vatican Will Protect Benedict From Sexual Abuse Prosecution”. Neither of these agree with your own title – which is a concern for me, where you assert that he is going to seek immunity (“Pope to seek immunity …”).

          The second title, to which I have not seen your own title, but from which you progress to claim the Vatican launders money syas it all, but I’m not sure that YOU understand what is means to be on the “concern list” – a reason for which you jump to a twisted conclusion. The US giving the report, is even more vulnerable. Once large amounts of money are involved in any economy, my learned friend, it is thought to be an area of concern (which was happening for the first time by the way) because it is easier for frauds to go undetected with large volumes. Do some economics…

        • Certainly, you cannot class me average – neither will I even think in my dreams to be that – too low for me! I have 4 degrees (a privilege one has when he’s not looking for money). My first two, both undergraduate have first class attached to them. Not because some rich kid was in school, but because he paid attention and did his best. Masters with an A+ grade, passing me on straight to a PhD. The grades all through the years at different schools couldn’t have been errors.

    • Perhaps you share the truth as you think it – not what is. You shared a report: there was no mention of what you thought was there – I didn’t see it, neither were you able to point it out to me. Instead, you asked me to “read between the lines”. Why does your sorry mind – if there is – read what is apparently not in a report (just like your headlines) and then you want someone who is not as sick as you are to think the same way?

      As it were, I gave you sufficient evidence of Annett’s instability – which was convenient for you to dismiss with a wave of hand – wasn’t it? And you call on me to give you evidence? “a paid shill”? Why does your sorry mind think that there are not people who care about correct info except it is tied to money? A projection of the self?

      • I asked you to read between the lines when the media is trying to show Vatican Bank as a victim of money laundering rather than the party that is complicit in the crime. When you are in banking business, you are required to take measures to stop money laundering.

        But then the laws are for the little people to follow, Not the ones who are too big and above the law. That is why I support Kevin Annett..as he takes the fight to those that are above the law. Ofcourse he will be attacked by people like you.

        And hello, did you read the headline on the articles i shared? The headlines say it all for the intelligent.

        Lol self projection of a paid shill? I did not know Kevin Annett is also rich like The Vatican!
