Giovanni Angelo Bicicu, former Vatican Secretary of State and recently, head of the Holy See’s saint-making wing, funneling some $ 800,000 of the Pope’s charity to Australia to buy perjury against the Pope’s charity Cardinal George Pelel Has been charged. , While he was on a sexual harassment choir trial in Australia more than 30 years ago.
Bisiku issued a statement on Monday denying all wrongdoing, stating, “I refuse to interfere in any way in Cardinal Pell’s trial.”
Pell, who mysteriously returned to Rome last week despite a ban on foreign travel to Rome, was first convicted in 2018, and then acquitted of the historic clerical sexual abuse in April, which was called “The Cathedral Trial “Because the alleged crime took place in Melbourne’s main basilica. The trial in which he was acquitted came after a jury in the same trial. A subsequent trial that included Pell’s charges for arming the young boys ‘genitals at a public swimming club, known as the “swimmers’ trial”, was when Pell was convicted.
Pell left Rome in 2017, serving as the Pope’s top financial czar as head of the economy’s secretariat. The Pope never removed him from that position even after he was convicted, but the term ended in 2019 and Pell’s mandate was not renewed. The role has not been filled since.
It was during that time as Vatican’s No. 3 that he first accused BCU – who was then Vatican’s Secretary of State and thus Church’s No. 2 – Dodgy Loans for Financial Disabilities, one in London’s Sloane Square Property, and the transfer of cash from the pope donation known as Peter’s Pence to his brother in the mysterious Sardinia.
At the time, Pell ordered an audit regarding the financial anomalies of the Holy See, prevented by Basilu, who was Pell’s superior. It is unclear what Pope Francis said at the time, when the BCU drew ranks to block the audit.
Over the weekend, a leaked summary of what is being reported to the Italian newspapers as an internal investigation into the alleged crimes of the Basic of the Vatican was dropped. Those leaks mean that Bisexi is under investigation for a funnel of about $ 800,000 for conservative groups in Australia, which means buying hostile testimony against Pell in his pedophile trial. Pell was unanimously convicted in February 2019 for assaulting two former choirs in the church, while he was a Melbourne fanatic in the 1990s. In April an appellate court found that there was a lack of testimony.
The Italian leak also mentions a 39-year-old woman named Cecilia Morogna, who is described as a niece of Bescue and is reported to be involved in some transfers. But the investigation has meant that Morogna is no relative of Bekisu and is in fact part of a Freemasonry Roosevelt movement. The grainy photos in the papers mean that he has been seen several times in Rome in the Cardinal Company.
On Monday in Melbourne, an attorney representing the primary witness in the trial against Pell refused to receive funding for her testimony. Viv Waller represents the alleged victim, whose name has not been made public due to privacy issues related to allegations of child sexual abuse. She stated that her client’s testimony was genuine. “My client denied any knowledge or receipt of any payment,” she told reporters in Melbourne. “He would not comment further in response to these allegations.”
Pell’s Australian lawyer, Robert Richter, has insisted that these claims of testimony should be investigated for payment. On Monday, he said, “They are related to the allegations and require a thorough investigation of the money trail.”
The Vatican has not issued comment on the latest allegations, beyond confirming that its investigation into Besiku and at least six others are continuing in secrecy.
