October 13, 2021 The third criminal section of the Court of Cassation canceled the order of the review of Rome which had confirmed the precautionary measure in prison issued by the investigating judge against the Molise broker Gianluigi Torzi for the crime of self-laundering of the money obtained by the Vatican for the acquisition of ownership of the famous London building.

This was communicated by the defenders of Torzi, the lawyers Ambra Giovene and Marco Franco.

For criminal prosecutors "this annulment will be an important step in demonstrating the innocence of their client: the evidence was provided to the Italian judicial authority by the same Vatican Promoters of Justice. The groundlessness of the accusatory theorem developed by the Vatican judicial authority, already demolished by the English judge Baumgartner ", the defenders conclude.
