CWN Editor's Note: The Italian businessman arrested by the Vatican in connection with a London real-estate transfer had a prior history of questionable financial practices, the Financial Times reports.

The Financial Times notes that Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Secretary of State; and Archbishop Edgar Peña Parra, the sostituto, authorized Torzi’s involvement.
