Petersburg Man Accused of Possessing Child Pornography

His arrest comes after an eight-month investigation by the Holy See, which was first informed of a potential problem by the US State Department previous year.

Capella was a high-ranking priest in the Vatican's diplomatic corps.

The Vatican on Saturday arrested a diplomat recalled from Washington previous year amid investigations in Canada, the United States and the Vatican for possession of child pornography.

Monsignor Carlo Capella's arrest came eight months after his recall to the Vatican from a post in Washington, D.C. He was ordered jailed in the barracks of the Vatican police force, according to a Vatican press release.

Paragraph 3 deals with a criminal who "distributes, disseminates, transmits, imports, exports, offers or sells child pornography through any means, even electronically, as well as whoever posses child pornography for those purposes or otherwise distributes or disseminates knowledge of information directed at grooming or exploiting minors for sexual purposes".

At the time, the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops urged the Holy See to be "forthcoming with more details" and called for an "immediate, thorough, and transparent investigation ... in cooperation with law enforcement". The investigation will continue with detailed forensic exams of the remaining electronic devices found in Janecka's possession.


A statement identified the accused as Msgr.

Police in Windsor, Ontario, stated that Capella reportedly downloaded child porn from a social networking site while visiting a place of worship from December 24-27, 2016.

Timothy Huggins, 29, was taken into custody on Friday and arrested for possession and distribution of child pornography. The articles cited by the statement related to child pornography.

He died in a hospital in 2015 at 67, before his trial before a Vatican court could begin.

The pope then appointed the Vatican's former prosecutor for sex abuse to interview witnesses and examine possible new evidence in the case.
