Swiss money flight prelate talks to investigators


Rome, July 8 - Msgr Nunzio Scarano, the disgraced
prelate at the centre of a money-laundering scandal, has been
cooperating with prosecutors, officials said Monday.
They added Scarano, who was questioned for about three
hours on Monday, has provided information that could be helpful
in other probes.
The prelate was arrested last month on suspicion of
planning to elude customs with 20 million euros in cash.
He has denied charges that he conspired with a former
Italian spy and a financial broker to try to secretly repatriate
20 million euros of laundered money from Switzerland to Italy.
At the same time, authorities also arrested Giovanni Maria
Zito, an agent in the AISI intelligence agency, and Rome broker
Giovanni Carenzio.
Police said Scarano and Zito got a private jet to fly back
from Switzerland to Italy 20 million euros in cash for a family
who were friends with Scarano.
Zito is suspected of getting 400,000 euros for arranging
cover for the flight.
Scarano has been named in a separate probe into receiving
money in Salerno near Naples.
The arrests have been linked by the Italian media to past
probes into alleged irregularities at the Vatican Bank, IOR.
