Don’t get your hopes high, however it does look like a group of rape victims by the hands of clerics in the Catholic church decided to go against the Vatican and try to persecute the institution for its share of responsibility for the crimes as well as the cover ups that usually follow all these cases.
The head of the church is probably what they target, but its hard to believe that the court will go after the pope, the court might actually drop the case altogether because of its more defined work against war crimes and more serious international crimes, however one must remember that this court is also the one to put crimes against humanity on the spot and that the continuous rape of young boys in catholic church reports have been like a epidemic in the last decade or so.
So will try or will they not go after the Vatican or the Pope? if this receives enough attention it will not need to because the main point here it to point the finger at the people who are in charge of those sexual criminals, even if they did not know a thing about it, it still does not mean they can get away with it.
Many people forget that priests are under the control of the church, and that it is the church institutions that clerics and priests arrive from, it is the responsibility of the church to qualify only those who are fit and who have shown themselves to be worthy or a congregations trust, and even though it might sound like amplifying the cause, the Vatican is ultimately the one to answer the main questions of how these people ever got to be around young kids and why in many cases the church tried to cover it up.
