(see previous).
Rome, June 28 - An allegedly illicit attempt by a
top Vatican prelate, a spy and a Rome broker to secretly fly 20
million euros back to Italy from Switzerland was carried out for
three brothers who own a Rome-based oil-tanker fleet, police
said Friday.
Paolo, Cesare and Maurizio D'Amico were the alleged
beneficiaries of an operation involving a private jet said to
have been ordered by Vatican asset-management accounts chief
Msgr Nunzio Scarano with the complicity of intelligence agent
Giovanni Maria Zito, they said.
The brothers were reported to be friends of Msgr Scarano,
who was suspended a month ago.
The attempt to fly in the money failed, police said.
Vatican Bank IOR, to which the Holy See's assets agency APSA
is linked, told ANSA it aimed to "cooperate fully with Italian
authorities" and launch an internal inquiry "in line with the
zero-tolerance policy promoted by (new) president Ernest Von
Freyberg".
Scarano was in custody in Rome's Regina Coeli prison while
Zito is being held in a military prison at Santa Maria Capua
Vetere near Naples and broker Giovanni Carenzio in Naples'
Poggioreale jail.
