    Vatican cocaine-filled condoms parcel seized by German customs officers

    Package sent to the Vatican from a South American country contained 14 condoms filled with £33,000 worth of liquid cocaine


    German customs officials have intercepted a package addressed to the Vatican containing 14 condoms filled with cocaine.

    A government spokesman said a box packed with 340 grammes of the drug, valued at €40,000 (£33,470), was seized in January at the international airport in the eastern city of Leipzig.

    The cocaine, posted from an unnamed South American country, was in liquid form. It had been poured into the condoms and placed in the package addressed to the main postal centre at the Vatican.

    Authorities handed the parcel to a Vatican police officer with the aim of laying a trap.

    But the box was not claimed. German investigators believe the intended recipient, who remains unknown, was tipped off about the interception.

    The Vatican office of Interpol is working on the investigation with the Leipzig prosecutor's office, which could not be reached for comment.

    A most ridiculous thing to have happened.

    Possibly to embarrass the new Pope, who is trying to undo all the wrongs done so far!

    And because he is Peoples' Pope!

    The Pope has cared about the poor and he has started cleaning up the Vatican and all the funds that were being used for a variety of clandestine reasons.

    Therefore, he has made many enemies, who wanted to use the Vatican as the front for nefarious reasons.

    What could be better than to embarrass him?

    In key reform, Pope Francis centralizes Vatican finances

    ROME -- In the most concrete sign to date of his intention to reform the Vatican, Pope Francis announced the creation Monday of a single authority to handle all business, administrative and personnel management at the Holy See, a response to the rash of financial scandals that have tarnished the Roman Catholic Church's reputation among believers and nonbelievers.

    The new Secretariat for the Economy will draw up the Vatican's annual budget, call on lay experts for advice and launch surprise internal audits. The body will help ensure “a more formal commitment to adopting accounting standards and generally accepted financial management and reporting practices, as well as enhanced internal controls, transparency and governance,” the Vatican said in a statement......
    In a papal document known as a motu proprio, Francis decreed that Pell would work with a 15-member council made up of eight senior prelates from different parts of the world, as well as seven lay experts “of various nationalities, with financial skills and acknowledged professional status.” The pope has already hired independent firms such as Ernst & Young and KPMG to help shake up the Vatican’s complicated and murky bureaucracy........

    Allegations of corrupt purchasing practices at the Vatican surfaced in letters written to Francis' predecessor, Pope Benedict, which were leaked by his personal butler in 2012. Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, formerly the deputy governor of Vatican City, denounced the signing by Vatican staff of inflated contracts with friendly companies. As proof, Vigano said he was able to cut 250,000 euros, or about $340,000, off the price of a Christmas Nativity scene in St. Peter’s Square.

    It's been a year since a little-known Argentinian Archbishop became Pope and turned the Catholic Church on its head. he was branded a revolutionary and a Marxist by some, others condemned him for not being active enough. Meanwhile Vatican City, and Rome itself, is experiencing a boom from the so-called 'Francis effect'.
