Pope Francis is set to be investigated after he allegedly authorized the unlawful wiretaps of phones in the sale of a London property.

The alleged authorization is said to have taken place during a Vatican investigation into the corrupt sale of a £300 million property in London.

This is coming after the legal team for British financier, Raffaele Mincione filed a complaint to the UN about the alleged abuses committed during the trial by Pope Francis

According to Rodney Dixon KC, a human rights barrister, the Pope approved for Mr Mincione’s phone to be wiretapped during the investigation into the alleged wrongdoing at the Vatican.

The trial also heard that the spiritual leader allowed investigators to tap phones, intercept emails, and arrest anyone without approval from a judge.

Raffaele said, “My basic rights have been trampled on and been ignored. How can it be correct that I have been handed criminal penalties for breaches of spiritual law which only applies to members of the Church, which don’t seem to apply to anyone else that handles the Vatican’s investments, and which I didn’t know anything about?

This has been a devastating experience for me and my family and I truly hope that the United Nations will pursue justice in this matter.”

A spokesperson for the Vatican responded, “The legitimacy of the investigations and the correspondence of the Vatican judiciary system to the principles of fair trial has been recognised by various foreign courts.”


Pope Francis (Latin: Franciscus; Italian: Francesco; Spanish: Francisco; born Jorge Mario Bergoglio, 17 December 1936) is, as the bishop of Rome, the head of the Catholic Church and sovereign of the Vatican City State.

Francis is the first Jesuit pope, the first from the Americas, the first from the Southern Hemisphere, and the first pope from outside Europe since the Syrian Gregory III, who reigned in the 8th century.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio was born on 17 December 1936 in Flores, a neighborhood of Buenos Aires. He was the eldest of five children of Mario José Bergoglio (1908–1959) and Regina María Sívori (1911–1981). Mario Bergoglio was an Italian immigrant accountant born in Portacomaro (Province of Asti) in Italy’s Piedmont region.
