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