In new law with “seismic” potential, Pope Francis to allow cardinals and bishops to stand trial before the Vatican’s civilian-led courts...
Via New Advent
Pope Francis on Friday issued his second change to Vatican City law in two days. In a newly issued motu proprio, the pope amended Vatican City state law, to allow cardinals and bishops to stand trial before the city state’s civilian-led courts, with his prior consent. The change might set the stage for a dramatic conclusion to the roiling financial scandals at the Secretariat of State.
