Vatican rules: bank documents must not be edited, removed, destroyed

Catholic World News - July 11, 2013

The Vatican judiciary has issued an order prohibiting the alteration of destruction of any documents at the Institute for Religious Works (IOR), as Pope Francis steps up the pressure for thorough reform at the Vatican bank, reports Andea Tornielli of La Stampa.

Contradicting a report by another Italian journalist (Sandro Magister of L’Espresso), Tornielli reports that the prelate appointed by the Pontiff to oversee the IOR, Msgr. Mario Salvatore Ricca, still enjoys the Pope’s full confidence. Msgr. Ricca has been given authority to see all documents related to the bank’s activities.
