Cardinal Angelo Becciu “is serene and will turn with full confidence to the third and impartial judge “. The defenders of the former number two of the Vatican secretariat of state, accused in the trial in the Vatican for the financial scandal linked to the sale of the London building on Sloane Avenue, tell the Adnkronos what the mood of the cardinal is on the eve of the his questioning before the Court.

Defenders Fabio Viglione and Maria Concetta Marzo observe: “We have long awaited this first moment of clarification and truthwhich comes after so many errors and narrative distortions “.

“The alleged embezzlement – they explain – is non-existent: this is demonstrated by the meritorious works of charity that these contributions have made it possible to carry out in favor of the weakest”. The cardinal’s lawyers reiterate the cardinal’s extraneousness with respect to any accusation: “The cardinal has not committed any crimes, so we will not give up”.
