The program Report, broadcast by the Rai 3 channel, interviewed the Vatican's former auditor general, Libero Milone, who assured that during his work at the Vatican, he alerted superiors to the "risky" nature of the investments in the pharmaceutical industry using the money of the faithful.
He also warned that this type of industry goes against the traditional values of the Catholic Church. Therefore, he discouraged and condemned this type of investment.
Milone was the first auditor general of the Vatican, appointed in 2015 by Pope Francis. During his conversation with the journalist, Milone said he considered the investments a risk "because they do not correspond to the social doctrine of the Church."
