Vatican tribunal refuses to dismiss lawsuit by former auditor
March 15, 2023
CWN Editor's Note: In a setback for Vatican prosecutors and the Secretariat of State, a tribunal has refused to dismiss a lawsuit by the Vatican’s former auditor, Libero Milone, and his deputy, who have charged that they were wrongfully dismissed.
Milone has said that he was forced out by Vatican officials including Cardinal Angelo Becciu—the chief defendant in the current financial-mismanagement trial—after he uncovered evidence of financial corruption. He himself faces criminal charges brought by the Vatican prosecutor, which he says were revived in retaliation when he filed his lawsuit.
In refusing to dismiss the case, the Vatican court found that Milone had presented sufficient evidence to warrant a full hearing of the case.
