Catholic World News - June 09, 2014

The Vatican’s Financial Information Authority (AIF) has signed a working agreement with its counterparts in the United Kingdom, France, Malta, Romania, Poland and Peru, establishing formal procedures for cooperation in efforts to fight money laundering and the financing of terrorist organizations.

The June 7 announcement of the agreements came two days after Pope Francis appointed an interim vice-director and an all-new board of directors for the financial oversight agency.

The AIF previously signed agreements with Australia, Belgium, Cyprus, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain and the United States.
