The Vatican Tribunal is preparing the trial against Cardinal Angelo Becciu, five of his collaborators, and the former director of the Vatican’s Financial Information Authority, Abc.es (September 28) writes.
Vatican justice is known for being notoriously corrupt and inefficient. According to the Vatican Press Office Gianluca Perone, a lawyer and professor of commercial law, was appointed as a third public prosecutor.
The process will deal with the London Sloane Avenue investment of the Secretariat of State for which Becciu was responsible in third place after Cardinal Parolin and Francis.

Francis used Becciu for years as his hatchet man who had no regard for decency or Faith.
