Indicted former Vatican finance watchdog resigns from Swiss bank role
August 23, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: René Brülhart, the former president of the Vatican’s Financial Information Authority (AIF), has resigned from the board of a Swiss Bank for “personal reasons,” the Pillar news site reports. Brülhart, a career banker who presided over the Vatican agency assigned to monitor financial transactions, has been charged by Vatican prosecutors with abusing his office. His trial before a Vatican tribunal is now in its early stages. Earlier this year the Pillar site revealed that while at the AIF, Brülhart also was paid as a consultant by the Vatican Secretariat of State, to provide advice on that office’s investments—despite the apparent conflict between those roles.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
