“We are at a turning point. The lawyer and I have elements in hand that can help us with certainty to understand what happened. But we need the collaboration of people who also work in the Vatican, who are aware of this fact, that we free our conscience and that we have the courage not to remain anonymous. We need them “. To tell the Adnkronos, just before the start of the sit-in to commemorate Emanuela Orlandi – currently underway in Rome in Largo Giovanni XXIII, as every June 22 – is the brother Pietro Orlandi, who announces decisive elements for the solution of the case on the disappearance of the young woman. “The Vatican does not want to listen to us, despite the fact that Pope Francis replied to me and in a letter urged me to share the elements we know of with the Vatican”, reiterates Peter. Which anticipates some of the elements that could be decisive for understanding what happened to her sister on that June 22, 1983. “One of these elements consists of some Whatsapp messages between two people close to Pope Francis on confidential telephones of the Holy See – Orlandi reveals. they speak of movements linked to this affair, of documentation on Emanuela, and they say that Pope Francis and Cardinal Abril, who at the time was the president of the cardinal’s commission of the IOR, were aware of it “. The cardinal has been contacted several times by his brother by Emanuela, but without success. “I texted him a lot, but he doesn’t reply,” he says. And he adds: “This time it could be the right one. I have always had hope, every time the illusion has turned into disillusion but I don’t give up, because there is no power that can stop the truth, even if it remains. only one person to want and demand it. And since there are so many people here right now, this gives me immense pleasure and gives me hope because many of them didn’t even know Emanuela. And after 39 years, they are all here “.
