Pope sets up Vatican money-monitoring commission


Rome, July 19 - Pope Francis on Friday announced
the appointment of a panel of eight experts, including a young
female Ernst & Young accounting executive, to run a pontifical
commission aimed at monitoring the economic and organizational
structure of Vatican City.
The new commission will "gather information, refer to the
pope and cooperate with the Council of Cardinals to study the
organizational and economic problems of the Holy See" and aims
to "simplify and rationalize existing organisms and provide a
more attentive program of the economic activities of all the
Vatican administrations," said a Vatican statement.
The commission's members, who are experts in "judicial,
economic, financial and organizational matters", are President
Joseph F.X. Zahra of Malta; Monsignor Lucio Angel Vallejo Balda
appointed to the post of secretary; Jean-Baptiste de Franssu of
France; Enrique Llano of Spain; Jochen Messemer of Germany;
Francesca Immacolata Chaouqui of Italy; Jean Videlain-Sevestre
of France; and George Yeo of Singapore.
The first meeting will likely take place when the pontiff
returns from his trip to Brazil for World Youth Day at the end
of the month.
Last month the pope created a related commission to oversee
the Vatican Bank, officially known as the Institute for
Religious Works (IOR), aimed at keeping the pontiff abreast the
bank's activities and making sure it operates in harmony with
"the Vatican's mission".
The Vatican Bank has come under scrutiny for alleged money
laundering and is now working with the Council of Europe's
Moneyval anti-money-laundering agency in a bid to make it onto
the international 'white list' of banking.
