Vatican police 'break up gay orgy' at home of one of Pope Francis' advisors


In the latest scandal to hit the Catholic church, Vatican police have broken up a gay orgy at the home of the secretary to one of Pope Francis’s key advisers. The flat belonged to the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, or Holy Office, which is in charge of tackling sexual abuse amongst the clergy. Reports in Italy claim the occupant of the apartment is the secretary to Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio - a key aide to the 80-year-old Pope.
The claims about the police raid were made in the Italian newspaper Il Fatto Quotidiano. The flat involved is a short distance from the Vatican itself. According to the paper, neighbours became suspicious before complaining about irregular behaviour of those coming and going at the flat.
When police showed up, they reportedly found drugs and a group of men engaged in sexual activity. It is the latest scandal to hit the Vatican and comes after its finance chief Cardinal George Pell was charged with historical sexual offences.
