Searches were carried out this week on the Italian island of Sardinia in connection with a Vatican investigation into accusations of embezzlement by Cardinal Angelo Becciu.
The searches took place at the offices of Spes Cooperative, a limited liability corporation owned and legally represented by Becciu’s brother Antonino, as well as at the Diocese of Ozieri and its diocesan charity, Caritas.
Ozieri is the former diocese of Becciu, who is from Sardinia.
Rome prosecutor Maria Teresa Gerace is reported to have ordered the searches at the request of Vatican prosecutors.
