Title: Archbishop Viganò ordered to pay back $2 million to his brother

Author: Gerard O’Connell

Publisher: America The Jesuit Review

Date: 15NOV18

An Italian court has ordered Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, the former papal nuncio to the United States, to pay back to his brother, the Rev. Lorenzo Viganò, more than $2 million, plus interest, which he had, according to the Italian press, “illegally and illegitimately” taken from him over many years.

The sentence was issued by Judge Susanna Terni after hearing the case in the civil tribunal of Milan in mid-October, but the ruling was only made known last evening and published by the Italian press today.

Late last August, Archbishop Viganò made headlines around the world when he accused Pope Francis of covering up the abuse of the former cardinal Theodore McCarrick and called on the pope to resign.
