CWN Editor's Note: Forbes magazine provides a primer on the issues involved in the Vatican financial-misconduct trial. Citing an unnamed Vatican source, the magazine says that Pope Francis received a dossier five years ago that pointed to a diversion of funds by Cardinal Angelo Becciu, who is now the lead defendant. The Pope reportedly declined to take action on the dossier at that time; much later he authorized a full investigation.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
