CWN Editor's Note: A British court has lifted an order freezing the financial assets of Gianluigi Torzi, who faces Vatican charges in connection with a Vatican financial scandal.

British authorities had frozen Torzi’s bank accounts at the request of the Vatican; the release of those accounts appears to be a setback for Vatican prosecutors.
