Vatican accuses two hospital officials

Today, 17:26

The Vatican has accused the former director and treasurer of the Vatican children’s hospital Bambino Gesù in Rome. These two are suspected of transferring money illegally.

The suspects are said to have used 422,000 euros of the hospital’s money in 2013 and 2014 for the renovation of an apartment of a prominent [homophobic] cardinal, Bertone. He was Minister of Foreign Affairs under Pope Benedict and was one of the most powerful people in the Vatican. The current Pope Franciscus sacked him after eight months. A few weeks after his departure, the renovation of the apartment began. …

It is not the first scandal in the Vatican of recent weeks. Two weeks ago, the Vatican’s #3 man was charged with sexual abuse. Two days later, Pope Francis sent a German cardinal packing.
