Trial requested for ex-Vatican Bank general manager (see related) (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.
