Russia Today: Vatican bank accused of laundering
The Vatican is facing some awkward questions after an investigation was launched into its alleged involvement in a money-laundering scheme.
The financial scandal was triggered by a report in an Italian magazine that claimed the Vatican bank laundered some $200 million.
The alleged secrets of the Vatican have often provided rich material for fictional works, such as blockbuster film Angels and Demons, but the Holy See now has to deal with a case equally shrouded in mystery.
The Vatican Bank has been accused of laundering $200 million through the accounts of Italy’s UniCredit Bank, one of the world's largest financial institutions.
“I had the privilege to walk inside this bank. It’s nothing like a bank,” shared lawyer Massimiliano Gabrieli. “If you go there you deposit or withdraw money without limit, without any kind of receipt for the bank and for the client. All you have is a single card with a number.”
