Italian Police Seize $30 Million From Vatican In Probe


www.suntimes.com

Italian authorities seized €23 million ($30.18 million) from a Vatican bank account Tuesday and said they have begun investigating top officials of the Vatican bank in connection with a money laundering probe.

The Vatican said it was "perplexed and surprised" by the investigation.

Italian financial police seized the money as a precaution and prosecutors placed the Vatican bank's director general and its chairman under investigation for alleged mistakes linked to violations...

Does this 30million dollar figure sound familiar?
Maybe this is just a coincidence?

In any case, it here is a little backgound...


The IOR principally manages funds for the Vatican and religious institutions around the world, such as charity organisations and religious orders of priests and nuns.

It was involved in a worldwide scandal in 1982 when it was embroiled in the fraudulent bankruptcy of Banco Ambrosiano, then Italy's largest private bank.

The IOR held a small stake in Ambrosiano, whose president Roberto Calvi was found hanged under London's Blackfriars Bridge the same year.

Several investigations failed to determine whether Calvi, known as God's Banker, had been killed or committed suicide.

Yes, I think this most likely happens often. More than we know...
Although they dont get handled too often.

I can not help but wonder about this, if there is a connection to that most interesting story back in 2009...
How the Bearer Bonds Saga Could Bring Down the US

For those of you who don’t know, a report surfaced on Monday, June 8, on an obscure Vatican-sponsored news website, AsiaNews.it, that Italy’s financial police (Guardia Italiana di Finanza) had “seized US bonds worth US 134.5 billion from two Japanese nationals at Chiasso (40 km from Milan) on the border between Italy and Switzerland.”

I am sure they make more money from the sale of technology. It always amuses me how no one on ATS seems concerned that the Jesuits, the 'military arm' of the church, controls the distribution of new technology...

I guess we prefer to argue about aliens or attack ufologist instead...

Wheeling Jesuit University also receives annual grants from NASA. Now I don't know about the rest of you, but a public funded agency that claims to be having budget issues, funding programs of a church..

Zorgon, thank you for your very informative post.

Very fishy...

War, Genocide, Jesuits, The Military Order Of Malta, Opus Dei, it seems the nasty list goes on and on. Yes, this group is obscenely wealthy...

"For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence - on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day.

It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined.

Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed."

- John F. Kennedy

In a brutally silencing way they did at that.
While we may never really know for sure, that statement he made is chilling.
It can not be overlooked.
