CWN Editor's Note: The Vatican has announced the conviction of an Italian contractor, Angelo Projetti, who faces a 2-year prison term for violating new Vatican laws against money-laundering. The conviction—which will likely be appealed—is the first under the new laws. European banking officials have praised the new rules, but pressed the Vatican to prosecute offenders.
