A controversial loan, made by Vatican officials to finance a London real-estate deal, was arranged through a Swiss bank with a reputation for money-laundering violations, reports Ed Condon of CNA in the latest of a series of investigative reports. Cardinal Pell, in his capacity as head of the Secretariat for the Economy, questioned the unauthorized loan, but the Secretariat of State gave him a “reprimand” when he sought details, officials told CNA.
