Vatican Cardinal to go on trial for fraud

Vatican City, July 28 (TIWN) A Vatican Cardinal, who was once a close adviser to Pope Francis, will face a trial over allegedly misusing Church funds in a London property venture, a media report said on Tuesday.

Besides the Cardinal, nine others are also accused of several other charges, including extortion, embezzlement and abuse of office. As reports of the fraud emerged, the Pope sacked the Cardinal last September.     A two-year probe revealed that how the Vatican lost millions of euros, including donations from worshippers, after buying a prestigious former Harrods warehouse in Sloane Avenue, Chelsea, in 2014, the BBC report said.
