Former Vatican finance overseer doubled as consultant to Secretariat of State

CWN Editor's Note: René Brülhart, the former head of the Vatican’s Financial Information Authority (AIF), was a paid consultant to the Secretariat of State, the PIllar news site reports. Brülhart, who resigned in November 2019, now faces charges for allegedly failing to exercise proper oversight over transactions by the Secretariat of State. He was apparently paid for consulting work arranged by Cardinal Angelo Becciu, who also faces legal charges for organizing the questionable transactions. Brülhart’s lawyer does not deny the consulting relationship, but Vatican sources tell Pillar that the arrangement—which appears to create a conflict of interest—was not disclosed to the Secretariat for the Economy.
