(ANSA) - Rome, March 28 - Rome prosecutors on Friday
requested that the former general manager of the Vatican Bank,
Paolo Cipriani, be sent to trial for allegedly breaking Italy's
laws against money laundering.
They also requested Cipriani's former deputy, Massimo
Tulli, be indicted.
The case is related to a probe that in 2010 led to the
freezing of 23 million euros over two cash transfers involving
the bank that were deemed suspicious.
Earlier on Friday a Rome judge upheld a request from
prosecutors for a probe into the former head of the Vatican
Bank, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, to be shelved.
