‘Pope Francis’s letter to CFK is a fake’
One of the Pope's closest collaborator, Argentine Monsignor Guillermo Karcher has affirmed that the letter from Pope Francis to President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner revealed earlier today by the government is a fake.
“I’m surprised, the letter seems like a collage, this has never happened before,” said Karcher to reporters.
“I can’t believe it. This forgery has been done with a lot of malice.”
The Vatican spokesman pointed out “several mistakes” present in the counterfeit letter, like the fact that it was written in capital letters, it wasn’t properly signed, and it should have been signed not by the Pope but by a papal representative.
The letter, revealed by the government and reproduced by local media earlier today, said Pope Francis urged Argentineans to work towards “a peaceful cohabitation” and to build “a constructive dialogue,” in the wake of the 204th anniversary of the May Revolution.
“Cristina: it is my pleasure to greet you and express my closeness and my most heartfel congratulations to all Argentinean in this national holiday,” reads the document.
