Vatican officials to be prosecuted by ICC?

This is a very interesting case being put forward by the Centre for Constitutional Rights and Survivors Network for those abused by Priests. READ I am not sure these advocacy groups will be able to satisfy the jurisdictional requirements in order to make the ICC operative but it should guarantee further bad press for the Vatican (which many suspect is the underlying intention).

Comments below offer interesting takes on the issue of jurisdiction and establishing criminal linkages between the Vatican top brass and crimes committed by priests in places like Ireland.
