Despite Pope Benedict XVI’s recent announcement that he will resign from the papacy at the end of this month, he will receive both legal immunity and personal security services by continuing to reside in the Vatican, Reuters reported. . .
The last major concern associated with Benedict's hypothetical relocation that was mentioned by officials centered on his vulnerability to legal challenges associated with the ongoing sexual-abuse lawsuits against the Roman Catholic Church. The pope's Vatican citizenship currently protects him in these cases under the provisions of the Lateran Pacts of 1929. . .
