Note on security in the Vatican

Vatican City, 12 January 2015 (VIS) – The director of the Holy See Press Office, Fr. Federico Lombardi, S.J., gave the following declaration to journalists today:

“Contrary to the claims made by some organs of the media, the Holy See has not been informed of specific risks by the security services of other Countries.

The Holy See maintains its usual, appropriate contacts with the security services, and in view of the current situation advises a reasonable level of attention and prudence, but concrete and specific risks have not been indicated.

There is therefore no reason to arouse concerns that may needlessly affect both those who live and work in the Vatican and the many pilgrims and tourists who visit on a daily basis”.
