Vatican City, Jun 30, 2020 / 03:35 am
Pope Francis has appointed a commissioner to reform the administration of the office responsible for the upkeep of St. Peter's Basilica, where documents and computers were seized by order of judicial authorities June 30.
The decision to appoint a commissioner was made following a report by the Vatican's auditor general, which is responsible for monitoring offices of the Roman Curia and Vatican City State for financial corruption.
According to a June 30 Vatican statement, retired nuncio Bishop Mario Giordana has been given the task of "updating the statutes, clarifying the administration and reorganizing the administrative and technical offices" of the Fabric of St. Peter.
Giordana will carry out "this delicate task" together with a commission, the statement continued.
