Vatican City, Jun 15, 2020 / 06:30 am
Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta has returned to work at the Vatican amid an ongoing trial in Argentina, where he has been charged with sexual and financial misconduct.
Holy See Press Office director Matteo Bruni told CNA June 15 that Zanchetta had resumed his work at the Vatican while "remaining available to the Argentine judicial authorities."
Bruni said that Zanchetta's work at the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (APSA) -- the Vatican's central reserve bank and sovereign asset management body -- "does not interfere in any way with the investigations."
Zanchetta, the former Bishop of Orán, Argentina, has been accused of "aggravated continuous sexual abuse" of two adult-aged seminarians, as well as fraud and mismanagement of funds. He denies the charges.
