Vatican scandal: Drug-fuelled orgy broken up by police, again

Vatican scandal: Drug-fuelled orgy broken up by police, again

Vatican City police entered an apartment at the former palace of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (or Holy Office) last month and interrupted the drug-fuelled homosexual orgy, newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano reported.

The drug scandal puts another spot on Holy See’s reputation, the flat belonged to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which is in charge of tackling clerical sexual abuse. The first signal to the police was from Secretary to Cardinal’s neighbours who became suspicious before complaining about the irregular behaviour of the visitors.

According to the local press, the occupant of the apartment is allegedly the secretary to Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio – a key assistant to the 80-year-old Pope Francis.

Police interrupted the drug-fuelled homosexual orgy in Vatican

Vatican City police have to pay a visit to the strange flat, and when the policemen entered the apartment, they reportedly found drugs and a group of men engaged in homosexual activity. After an arrest, the priest who is the head of the Pontifical Council for Legislative texts and a personal adviser to the Pope was taken for questioning.

Il Fatto Quotidiano suggested that Pope has been infuriated by the news and may force Coccopalmerio into retirement. However, the drug-fuelled incident is symptomatic of a difficult period for the Pope. Four years into his papacy the Catholic Church appears racked by conflict and scandal.
