English court orders Vatican to turn over internal messages on London deal
November 20, 2023
CWN Editor's Note: An English court has ordered the Vatican to turn over messages between Cardinal Pietro Parolin and Archbishop Edgar Peña Parra involving the controversial Vatican investment in a London real-state deal.
The Vatican has resisted allowing access to the email and text messages, claiming that they are covered by the pontifical secret.
The ruling came in a lawsuit brought by Raffaele Mincione, one of the defendants in the Vatican criminal trial revolving around the London investment. Mincione has sued the Vatican Secretariat of State, charging that the prosecution has damaged his reputation.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
