Wolves “Bertone’s name flared up in scandal-related news again in 2017 when allegations arose that some $480,000 from the Vatican’s Bambino Gesù children’s hospital were used to renovate his 4,300 square foot top-floor apartment on the edge of the Vatican gardens, which offers a clear view of St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican hotel where Francis lives.

Charges were raised against the former president and treasurer of Bambino Gesù, Giuseppe Profiti and Massimo Spina, both of whom were convicted of misuse of funds. Bertone, who argued that he paid the bulk of the money out-of-pocket and that the renovations were made so hospital fundraising events could be held on the property, was absent from the trial.”https://cruxnow.com/vatican/2018/10/scandal-plagued-cardinal-a-key-figure-in-mccarrick-vigano-saga/
