Vatican forms international group to fight corruption, organized crime
Catholic World News – August 02, 2017
The Vatican’s dicastery for Integral Human Development has formed an international group to fight against corruption and organized crime.
The new initiative, which will be launched in September, is the result of a conference held by the Vatican dicastery in June, under the leadership of Cardinal Peter Kodwo Turkson. An announcement of the group’s plans was released on August 2. (The announcement did not include a listing of the members of the group.)
“The constultation group will not just come up with virtuous exhortations, because concrete gestures are needed,” the announcement said. It envisioned an international network raising public awareness of the consequences of corruption. “The Church in the world is in itself a network,” the announcement noted.
