VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican’s swirling corruption investigation has taken a mysterious new twist with the arrest on an international warrant of a Sardinian woman said to be close to one of the Holy See’s most powerful cardinals before his downfall. fgg世界播

梵蒂冈城(美联社)-梵蒂冈错综复杂的腐败调查出现了神秘的新转折,一名撒丁岛女子根据国际逮捕令被捕,据说在他倒台之前,这名女子与罗马教廷最有权势的红衣主教之一关系密切。fgg世界播


Italy’s financial police said Wednesday that Cecilia Marogna had been arrested in Milan late Tuesday on a warrant issued by the Vatican City State. An official of the Guardia di Finanza, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the agency had no further information since officers merely executed the warrant on behalf of a foreign country, the Vatican. fgg世界播

意大利金融警察周三表示,Cecilia Marogna已于周二晚些时候根据梵蒂冈城邦发出的逮捕令在米兰被捕。金融卫报(Guardia Di Finanza)的一名不愿透露姓名的官员表示,该机构没有进一步的信息,因为官员们只是代表外国梵蒂冈执行了逮捕令。fgg世界播


Italian newspapers in recent weeks have reported that Cardinal Angelo Becciu, the onetime No. 2 in the Vatican secretariat of state, had wired hundreds of thousands of euros in Holy See funds to Marogna’s Slovenian-based consulting firm, purportedly for humanitarian operations in Africa and Asia. fgg世界播

最近几周,意大利报纸报道称,曾任梵蒂冈国务秘书处二号人物的红衣主教安杰洛·贝西乌(Angelo Becciu)已将数十万欧元的罗马教廷资金电汇给马罗格纳位于斯洛文尼亚的咨询公司,据称该公司用于非洲和亚洲的人道主义行动。fgg世界播


The reports, including interviews with Marogna herself, have identified the 39-year-old as a political analyst and intelligence expert who reached out to Becciu in 2015 with concerns about security for Vatican embassies in hotspots and was quickly brought into the cardinal’s inner circle. fgg世界播

这些报道,包括对Marogna本人的采访,确认这位39岁的政治分析人士和情报专家在2015年联系了贝丘,对梵蒂冈大使馆在热点地区的安全表示担忧,并很快被带入红衣主教的核心圈子。fgg世界播


Marogna told Corriere della Sera that over four years, Becciu wired her 500,000 euros as compensation, travel reimbursements and consultancy fees. She defended some luxury expenditures — designer pocketbooks for example — as being “maybe for the wife of a Nigerian friend who was in a position to talk to the president of Burkina Faso.” fgg世界播

Marogna告诉Corriere della Sera,四年多来,Becciu电汇了50万欧元作为补偿、旅费报销和咨询费。她辩称,一些奢侈品支出--例如设计师的钱包--“可能是给一位尼日利亚朋友的妻子,她有能力与布基纳法索总统交谈。”fgg世界播


Becciu, who was sacked by Pope Francis last month after admitting he sent 100,000 euros in Vatican money to a charity headed by his brother, has insisted that his dealings with Marogna were legitimate. fgg世界播

贝丘上个月承认向他哥哥领导的一家慈善机构输送了10万欧元的梵蒂冈资金后被教皇方济各解雇,他坚称自己与Marogna的交易是合法的。fgg世界播


In an Oct. 7 statement issued by his lawyer, Becciu said “the contacts with Cecilia Marogna strictly pertains to institutional affairs.” fgg世界播

在他的律师10月7日发表的一份声明中,Becciu说“与Cecilia Marogna的接触严格属于机构事务。”fgg世界播


Marogna’s arrest was believed to be part of a sprawling corruption investigation launched last year by Vatican prosecutors into the Holy See’s 350 million euro investment into a London real estate venture, much of it funded by donations from the faithful. fgg世界播

马洛格纳的被捕据信是梵蒂冈检察官去年发起的大规模腐败调查的一部分,调查对象是罗马教廷对伦敦一家房地产企业的3.5亿欧元投资,其中大部分资金来自信徒的捐款。fgg世界播


Vatican prosecutors are investigating a handful of Italian middlemen who are accused of having fleeced the Holy See of tens of millions of euros in fees while the Vatican’s incompetent money managers stood by. fgg世界播

梵蒂冈检察官正在调查几名意大利中间人,他们被控在梵蒂冈无能的资金经理袖手旁观的情况下,骗取了罗马教廷数千万欧元的费用。fgg世界播


Vatican prosecutors haven’t indicted anyone yet, and their case seems rife with holes and potential conflicts, given the Holy See's superiors approved the contracts with the middlemen that ceded them voting rights in the deal and provided them with huge management fees. fgg世界播

梵蒂冈检察官尚未起诉任何人,鉴于罗马教廷的上级批准了与中间人的合同,这些中间人放弃了他们在交易中的投票权,并向他们提供了巨额管理费,他们的案件似乎充满了漏洞和潜在的冲突。fgg世界播


To that extent, it’s not immediately clear what charges Marogna could face if she was merely on the receiving end of consulting fees approved by Becciu, who had been given broad discretionary authority to manage the secretariat of state's assets by none other than the secretary himself, Cardinal Pietro Parolin. fgg世界播

在这种程度上,目前还不清楚,如果马洛尼亚仅仅是贝丘批准的咨询费的接收方,她可能面临什么指控。贝丘被赋予了广泛的自由裁量权,由国务卿皮埃特罗·帕罗林红衣主教本人管理州秘书处的资产。fgg世界播


Becciu was the “substitute” in the secretariat of state from 2011-2018, during which time at the original real estate investment was made. But his replacement and the current No. 2 actually signed off on the last phase of the deal that has cost the Vatican so much money. fgg世界播

贝丘在2011-2018年担任国务秘书处的“替补”,在此期间进行了原有的房地产投资。但他的继任者和目前的2号人物实际上签署了交易的最后阶段,这让梵蒂冈损失了这么多钱。fgg世界播


Neither Becciu nor his replacement have been formally identified as suspects in the case, though when Francis fired Becciu last month, he also revoked his rights and privileges as a cardinal, meaning he could eventually be judged by Vatican magistrates. fgg世界播

贝丘和他的继任者都没有被正式确定为此案的嫌疑人,尽管当方济各上个月解雇贝丘时,他也取消了作为红衣主教的权利和特权,这意味着他最终可能会受到梵蒂冈地方法官的审判。fgg世界播


Becciu, who like Marogna is from Sardinia, has denied wrongdoing and defended the original investment as sound. fgg世界播

贝丘和马洛尼亚一样来自撒丁岛,他否认有不当行为,并为最初的投资辩护说是健全的。fgg世界播
