The prelate had been head of the Vatican’s saint-making office and called on Pope Francis on Thursday with a list of new saints when he was told to step down as police said he had embezzled hundreds of thousands of euros.
The sums were diverted from Vatican accounts to a supposedly charitable account in Ozieri, Sardinia, managed by his brother Tonino.
Ozieri Bishop Corrado Melis admitted that the money had never left that account but insisted it was intended for eventual charitable uses.
