Surprise: President Of Vatican's Financial Watchdog Agency Resigns

René Brülhart, a Swiss lawyer and head of the Vatican's watchdog, Financial Information Authority (AIF), will be leaving his post by the end of November.

The Vatican announced that Francis will name a new director of the agency after his November 19-26 visit to Thailand and Japan.

The official version is that Brüelhart's term expires. His resignation is another chapter in the months-long saga regarding the Vatican's financial controls.

The offices of Brülhart’s agency were raided by Vatican police on October 1. His subordinate was suspended.

Francis naming the head of a "financial watchdog" for the Vatican. Why is this a bad idea?
