Didn't you read the article?
The ITCCS, through its field Secretary, Rev. Kevin Annett wrote to President Napolitano, asking him to refrain from assisting Ratzinger in evading justice. In the letter, it says,“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.
The letter went on to state that Italy had a role to play saying,“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.”
The Pope is wanted for crimes of child torture, trafficking and genocide.
