Alitalia president named as Vatican’s international financial controller
ROME (Thomson Financial) – Alitalia president Maurizio Prato has been named as the Vatican’s international financial controller by Pope Benedict XVI, according to a statement from the Holy See.
The council of international financial controllers is attached to the Vatican’s prefecture of economic affairs, which controls the administration of Vatican City and drafts the Holy See’s financial accounts.
The council has to comprise five professionals particularly competent in examining accounts and balance sheets, and who are prepared to give their services free of charge. The council members meet at least once a year.
Prato was already a councillor with the Vatican’s prefecture of economic affairs.
Prato will take on this new role ‘in addition to his functions at the head of Alitalia’, a spokesperson for Alitalia told Agence France-Presse.
Given the grand state of affairs at Alitalia these days, can this be good?
