A Roman Catholic cardinal who used to be as soon as a end ally of Pope Francis has gone on trial in the Vatican, accused of misusing Church money in a ruinous London property challenge.
Cardinal Angelo Becciu, 73, is basically the most senior cleric in customary events to face trial for alleged monetary crimes.
He’s charged with spending €350m (£299m; $412m) of church money on a botched deal to fetch a property in Chelsea that incurred mountainous losses.
He denies wrongdoing.
