Another raid. What happened to the Texas Rangers raiding Di Nardo?
“It was believed to be the first time the two departments were searched for evidence involving alleged financial crimes.
The Secretariat of State, the most powerful department in the Vatican, is the nerve center of its bureaucracy and diplomacy and the administrative heart of the worldwide Catholic Church.
The AIF, headed by Swiss lawyer Rene Bruelhart, is the financial controller, with authority over all Vatican departments. “
One step closer to RICO. What else happened today with Vatican? Noose is tightening.
“Former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos tweeted out on Friday night that Attorney General Bill Barr is currently on official business in Italy.”
Developing Story…”Among the apparently suspended employees is Msgr. Mauro Carlino, who oversees documentation at the Secretariat of State, along with layman Tomasso Di Ruzza, director of the Vatican’s Financial Intelligence Authority.
Two other men and one woman are also listed as suspended.
The suspensions follow an Oct. 1 raid authorized by prosecutors in the Vatican City court system.
Documents and devices were taken in connection to an …..”
“ Something is seriously wrong here, wouldn’t you agree? Apparently the Vatican’s prosecutor agrees. We don’t know exactly what is happening, but we know that the case — rumored to involve millions of dollars in questionable real-estate transfers — is serious. Serious enough to justify a raid by Vatican police on a Vatican agency. This was the sort of open intramural conflict Rome has not seen for several centuries, the sort of conflict that could not escape the view of the Vatican-watching media.
And yet… Have you seen this story given headline treatment anywhere but on the Catholic Culture site [and on LifeSiteNews —ed.]?”https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/why-do-mainstream-catholic-media-have-so-little-to-say-about-vatican-raid
A portent of things to come.
“ Internal sources also believe there are connections with financial misconduct reported in the Administration of the Patrimony of the Holy See (APSA), the dicastery which handles the Vatican’s real estate, several of which are in prime areas of London, and financial assets.
In July, the Register reported on a similar mishandling of London real estate investments by APSA, as well as cyphered accounts in Switzerland connected to the same dicastery.
Vatican investigations into these areas, notably by Cardinal George Pell, then prefect of the Secretary for the Economy, and Milone, led to a series of obstacles emerging, most significantly the abrupt ending in 2017 of the first external audit of the Vatican.
A few months later, Milone was dismissed, and Cardinal Pell was forced to leave the Vatican to defend himself in Australia against clerical sex-abuse charges, which he vehemently denied.”
“ The deal — which reportedly resulted in a loss to the Holy See of tens of millions — has itself raised questions about the Vatican’s murky finances and poor investment decisions during Benedict’s papacy. Recently, Francis ordered cost cuts to relieve a structural deficit estimated at some 70 million euros.
But the raids and related suspensions, apparently launched due to more recent efforts to recover some of the lost money, were highly unusual for the Vatican and sparked fresh speculation about its Machiavellian turf battles, power struggles and score-settling.
Let’s do some simple math. 200M + 250 M = 450M 450M Peters Pense, almost 1/2 a billion dollars. 500K to the illegals storming the southern border is peanuts. “
”At the heart of the scandal is the alleged misappropriation of $200 million from Peter’s Pence towards the purchase of an upscale property on Sloane Avenue in London’s Chelsea district, a 56,000-square-foot former warehouse converted into 50 luxury apartments.
The Daily Beast claims the apartments were used by clergy for immoral sexual purposes — a claim Church Militant has not been able to verify.
Another $250 million from Peter’s Pence appears to have been spent on fraudulent legal firms established to cover the purchase of the London property. “
“ A former financial director is suing the diocese of Jackson, Mississippi, for wrongful termination after he was fired for trying to shield the diocese’s assets from being raided by Catholic Charities.
The Clarion-Ledger reported that on Oct. 2, Arie de Lange, the former chief financial officer for the Catholic diocese of Jackson, Mississippi, filed a lawsuit with Hinds County Circuit Court against the diocese and its ordinary, Bp. Joseph Kopacz, alleging he was fired in retaliation for his warnings about the budgetary practices of the diocese.
De Lange worked for the diocese for almost a decade and during that time, he was also a board member of Catholic Charities of Jackson, Mississippi. ”
“ A missionary council for indigenous peoples run by the Brazilian bishops’ conference has received almost $2 million from the pro-abortion Ford Foundation since 2006, a Brazilian journalist has revealed.
Bernardo Küster, who publishes largely through YouTube and on the website OsLeigos.com, said two other organizations participating in the synod have also received funding from the foundation, which has actively lobbied for abortion rights and gender ideology.
All are members of the Pan-Amazon Ecclesial Network (REPAM), an organization set up by the bishops’ conference of Latin America (CELAM) and Caritas, which has played the leading role in organizing the Amazon Synod that runs until Oct. 27.”
