Cdl Maradiaga: a financial scandal?

Oscar Maradiaga – a friend of the pope’s and the coordinator of his handpicked Council of Cardinals – may have been involved in mismanaging Church funds, and may also have accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars yearly from the Catholic University of Tegucigalpa.
