Raid at the Vatican

According to an Italian magazine, there was a massive raid at the Vatican. The offices responsible for finances at the Vatican's Secretariat of State became the scene of a police investigation.

As a result, five employees have been suspended.  Among those suspended is Monsignor Mauro Carlino. Carlino is responsible for documentation.  The other people suspended are 3 men and one woman.  Prosecutors from the Vatican's court system were responsible for ordering the raid. 

During the raid, devices and documents were confiscated by the authorities and will be used for further investigation into fraud. There has been concern over some financial transactions which took place during a period of time not specified. These transactions involved real estate business conducted. 

Pope Francis has made it a priority to investigate and clean up the Vatican's financial branch which has been plagued with corruption and scandal.  There is no word yet if those suspended will face any criminal charges.
