Italian court denies Msgr. Scarano's bid for release to house arrest

Catholic World News - July 10, 2013

An Italian court has ruled that Msgr. Nunzio Scarano, the Vatican official who is charged with a plan to bring €20 million in cash into Italy illegally, must remain in jail.

The court turned down an appeal to release Msgr. Scarano to house arrest. The court rejected a similar appeal by two others who were arrested in connection with the same plot to move case from Switzerland into Italy.

Msgr. Scarano is also under investigation on separate money-laundering charges.
