New Vatican consultant has unique credentials to tackle money-laundering issues
CWN - September 12, 2012
John Allen of the National Catholic Reporter remarks that Rene Bruelhart, the Vatican's newly appointed banking consultant, brings a unique and impressive set of credentials to his task of tightening safeguards against money-laundering.
Bruelhart is an acknowledged expert with experience both in discovering shady financial dealings and coping with the problems of a small state, Allen notes.
Allen also observes that the appointment of a Swiss lawyer continues a trend in which non-Italian laymen have been named to key Vatican posts dealing with politically sensitive affairs.
