The Rome Court of Review has refused bail for Vatican Bank official Mgr Nunzio Scarano, Vatican Insider reports.
Mgr Scarano of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (APSA) has been ordered to stay in prison by the Court of Review in Rome after it rejected an appeal presented by the prelate’s lawyers.
Judges also rejected an appeal presented for financial broker Giovanni Carenzio and Giovanni Maria Zito, an agent in the AISI intelligence agency.
The three men were arrested on 28 June after Rome prosecutors accused them of plotting to smuggle 20 million euros from Switzerland into Italy.
