Holy See Press Office Communiqué, 18.02.2020

This morning, as part of a search ordered by the Promoter of Justice, Gian Piero Milano, and the Adjunct Alessandro Diddi, documents and computer equipment were seized from the office and home of Bishop Alberto Perlasca, former head of the Administrative Office of the First Section of the Secretariat of State.

The measure, taken in the context of the investigation into financial investments and real estate of the Secretariat of State, is to be linked, while respecting the principle of the presumption of innocence, to what emerged from the first interrogations of the officials under investigation and suspended from service at that time.

The office of the Promoter of Justice and the Gendarmerie Corps are continuing their administrative and accounting investigations and their cooperation with foreign investigative authorities.
