Then-Cardinal Angelo Becciu speaks with journalists during a media conference in Rome Sept. 25, 2020. Italian newspapers speculated last month that Vatican investigators were looking into whether Becciu wired 700,000 euros ($823,000) in Vatican money to a bank account in Australia, and whether that money was tied to Pell's sex abuse trial. An Australian agency said it had reviewed the Vatican information and found the threshold to start an investigation had not been met. (CNS/Junno Arocho Esteves)
