Vatican City, Mar 5 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The Vatican has now been embarrassed by a gay sex scandal. According to reports, a member of the Pope’s inner circle is the nucleus of the scandal. He used to use the services of a young chorister, Thomas Chinedu Ehiem who used to get sexual partners for him. There is also a tape in which Thomas Chinedu Ehiem is conversing with Angelo about the kind of men he wanted. Angelo Balducci is a civil engineer by qualification, and he is also an honorary Vatican usher.

The Italian daily La Repubblica has gotten hold of the tapes and also published some of the conversations on Wednesday. The 29-year-old Thomas Chinedu Ehiem is a part of ‘Gentlemen of His Holiness’, which is a very special club and is a part of the Pope’s coterie.

All these details emerged when a group of 4 people were arrested last month for corruption. Angelo was also a part of his corruption racket, as he is a member of the Italy’s public works department. He was also arrested on corruption charges, and perhaps in view of the corruption charges his phone lines were tapped, which led to the scandalous disclosures about the kind of men he preferred.
