|MONSIGNOR NUNZIO SCARANO -ARRESTED|
At the end of the Post we placed a NOTE concerning reports of breaking news of a scandal involving 14 Clerics in Rome. At that stage the story doing the rounds and being heavily pushed on Internet TV by Michael Voris of Church Militant TV as evidence of the further decline.....etc etc, concerned allegations of a homosexual trafficking ring. BUT...
Now it transpires from official sources in Rome and the Press (less reliable) that the Monsignor arrested- Monsignor Nunzio Scarano an officer of the Vatican bank ( IOR) - was involved in bribing an official ( paid US 512,000) to facilitate the transfer of US $ 26,000,000 by air from Switzerland. In his efforts to bring down those who were seking to bring him to justice , this villain had concocted the sex ring story.He was aided in that effort by a laicised Priest and convicted pedophile Patrizio Poggi, who was enraged at the Holy See for only recently refusing his request to reverse his laicisation. That is the present state of things as far as I can ascertain.
So far Michael Voris has not given the new revelations the same publicity as the original allegations, let alone retracted the original story.He may be hoping that some element of truth in it may yet appear, considering Poggi's involvement.
According to AAP:
"Italian investigators, who described a remarkably detailed scheme allegedly spearheaded by Scarano to benefit some very wealthy friends. Prosecutor Nello Rossi identified them as the d'Amicos, one of Italy's most important shipping families from Scarano's hometown of Salerno in southern Italy.
