Title:

1981 - The attempt on the Pope John Paul II

Rights-Managed, Editorial

Location and time:

Italy, Rome, 13-05-1981

Description:

His Holiness Pope John Paul II, officially in Latin Ioannes Paulus PP. II, born Karol Józef Wojtyła (May 18, 1920 – April 2, 2005), was Pope of the Roman Catholic Church for almost 27 years, from 16 October 1978 until his death. As such, he was Bishop of Rome, ruled Vatican City and led the Roman Catholic Church including the Eastern Rite Churches in communion with the Holy See. He had the third-longest pontificate following St Peter and Pope Pius IX. (According to Catholic tradition, St Peter was the first Pope, although this was not a title used by St Peter himself). He was the first non-Italian to serve in office since the Dutch-German Pope Adrian VI assumed the papacy in 1522. His reign experienced a rapid decline of Catholicism in industrialized nations and expansion in the third world. On 13 May 1981, John Paul II was shot and critically wounded by Mehmet Ali Ağca, a Turkish gunman, as he entered St Peters Square to address an audience. Ağca was eventually sentenced to life imprisonment. Two days after the Christmas of 1983, John Paul visited the prison where his would-be assassin was being held. The two spoke privately for some time. John Paul II said "What we talked about will have to remain a secret between him and me. I spoke to him as a brother whom I have pardoned and who has my complete trust." Pope John Paul II died on 2 April 2005 after a long fight against Parkinsons disease and other illnesses. The public viewing of his body in St. Peters Basilica drew over four million people to Vatican City and was one of the largest pilgrimages in the history of Christianity.

Sound Bite and conversation:



Priore, Rosario

(detective in Italy, 1981) , speaking Italian:
-  "There was even an internal trace leading to the Pope assassination attempt, and also some rumors were going around, that everything had been planned within the Vatican. "

Andreotti, Giulio

(Former Minister President) , speaking Italian:
-  "My opinion is that there is a point that nobody would touch, which I think is drug trade. "

Goodman, Melvin

(CIA Agent at time of assassination attempt) , speaking English:
-  "It was obvious, that Casey, head of CIA, charged the Bulgarians and the soviets too with the assassination. But it was a fact that they did not have any evidence to prove the guilt of the Bulgarians nor the soviets. "

Goodman, Melvin

(CIA Agent at time of assassination attempt) , speaking English:
-  "When Agca was in prison, Italian secret agents visited him. They were talking about the Bulgarian and soviet relations."

Sejmov, Victor

(ex KGB agent) , speaking English:
-  "I can prove that there existed a command coming from Moscow, signed by Andropov, according to which they had to find out how to get close to the pope. In the idiom of the KGB this could mean only one thing. They were not asking us for advice, but it was straight forward, that the decision had already been made – the pope had to be killed. "

Priore, Rosario

(detective in Italy, 1981) , speaking Italian:
-  "What we knew for sure was that the assassination attempt was not planned by only one individual person. It was more of a homicidal fusion. The „Grey Wolfs” only took the order. But it was hard to say who the leader was."

Agca, Ali

(the assassin in 1981) , speaking English:
-  "Well after this, I understood, that I was led by a higher power. After all I am Jesus Christ. "

Jaruselsky, Wojciech

(former member of the Political Committee, Prime Minister in 1981) , speaking Polish:
-  "The Pope was the fuse of the rebellion that time, if I can say that."

König, Franz

(Cardinal of Vienna) , speaking German:
-  "All this was a provocation for the communist world. At that time, I was pretty interested in what the Russians would say about it."

Priore, Rosario

(detective in Italy, 1981) , speaking Italian:
-  "We found pictures of one of the Pope‘s services, where a person was clearly visible. If he is not Ali Agca, then he is his perfect double. "

Priore, Rosario

(detective in Italy, 1981) , speaking Italian:
-  "Unfortunately we face silence too often. "
