The Vatican’s Financial Intelligence Authority (AIF) and Auditor General’s Office released a joint statement on Wednesday. In it, they announced that on Tuesday, the President of AIF, Dr. Carmelo Barbagallo, and the interim Auditor General, Dr. Alessandro Cassinis Righini, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU).
This MoU seeks to strengthen “the already intense collaboration relationships between the two” offices. They also foresee “periodic meetings at both strategic and operational levels” as a means to meet their stated goal.
“The memorandum of understanding”, the statement reads, “will allow us to better fulfill the roles assigned” to them in the Vatican.
Those roles are: AIF – “the fight against money laundering and terrorism”; Auditor General’s office – “the fight against corruption”.
