Cardinal accused of €350m London property purchase with Church funds

73-year old Cardinal Angelo Becciu is facing charges in the Vatican on misappropriation of Church funds when he purchased a €350 million property in London.

Following a two-year investigation, it emerged that the Vatican suffered losses of millions of euro with the property purchase in 2014.

Cardinal Becciu, who was responsible for donations, was dismissed by Pope Francis last September as reports emerged on the case.
