Italian police on Thursday arrested a priest accused of pocketing 4 million euros ($5.1 million) from a Catholic hospital he ran and helping run up 600 million euros ($769 million) in debts that forced it into bankruptcy.
He welcomed the arrival of Cardinal Giuseppe Versaldi as the papal delegate to head the religious order — the Congregation for the Children of the Immaculate Conception — which runs the hospital, but he said in the end it didn't help "because we went into bankruptcy anyway."
"After years of suffering and eight months without salary, we at least have the satisfaction of seeing that justice is starting to work," Bartolomeo Di Gregorio, 56, a biomedical lab technician, told The Associated Press on Thursday.
