Vatican family chief in Umbria castle probe - update

Msgr Vincenzo Paglia among four probed for price-rigging

(ANSA) - Terni, May 27 - The president of the pontifical council for the family, former Terni bishop Vincenzo Paglia, could face charges in a probe into suspected embezzlement and price-rigging in the sale of an Umbrian castle, police said Wednesday.
    The sale of Narni's San Girolamo castle is linked to a "hole" of over 20 million euros during Paglia's term as Terni bishop, they said.
    The probe started in July 2013 with the arrest of the former head of the technical office of the diocese, Luca Galletti, former buyer Paolo Zappelli and the head of the Narni municipal planning office Antonio Zitti.
    Investigations have been concluded against all those implicated, the usual prelude to charges being brought.
