The suggestion was that he would go off to some unknown monastery tho. No need to leave Vatican City...

True, but if, for example, there was a European arrest warrant he would have no way of ever leaving Vatican City. It doesn't even have a helipad.

I read the other day that the pope has never had a drivers license but he did have a helicopter pilot license and he loved taking out the vatican copter. this makes it sound like the vatican does have a helipad.

I don't understand this. If he's going off to some unknown monastery then he would have to leave vatican city.

Not necessarily, they might just keep the 'copter at the local Italian airport.

How many monasteries do you know of in the Vatican? Without Googling?

The story I heard was he was no longer to do the travel the church thought the popes position required. Be it for legal reasons or health. I really doubt any legal entity would be stupid enough to put the pope on trial. To some that would be like trying to prosecute Jesus and that is an expensive mess no one wants to deal with. With his age you couldn't even be sure he'd live long enough for the trial to end.
