It is unclear whether the "individual measures" cited in the April 30 statement refer to an extension of existing suspensions, the dismissal of the officials, or some other action by Vatican officials.
The investigation is focused on a complicated series of financial transactions through which the Secretariat of State acquired a luxury property development in London for hundreds of millions of euros.
Two of the four suspended officials at the Secretariat of State, Carlino and Sansone, were registered directors of a UK-registered holding company, London 60 SA Ltd., though which the building is controlled by the secretariat. Both were removed as directors last year.
CNA has reported that the property was acquired by the Secretariat of State in a staggered series of purchases financed through loans by two Swiss banks, Credit Suisse and BSI. BSI was subsequently closed by financial authorities for systematic failures to prevent money laundering activity.
The building, at 60 Sloane Avenue in west London, was bought from Italian financier Raffaele Mincione, who arranged the Vatican's purchase through a string of his own companies and investment funds, making hundreds of millions of euros in profit from the deal.
Following the removal of Carlino and Sansone last year, the sole remaining director of London 60 SA Ltd. is Mr. Luciano Capaldo, an architect. According to his resumé Capaldo specializes in "real estate valuation" and "project-property design and management."
Calpaldo is also a former chairman of Imvest, a property development company listed in Rome. In 2016, Imvest offices were raided by Italian financial police in connection to charges of coordinated fraud, submission of false budgets, and false accounting.
The architect has also served as a director of several other companies, including Odikon Services, which is the subject of a lawsuit for fraud in the UK, and currently suspended by the UK's Financial Conduct Authority.
