Last month the Vatican hosted its first conference on corruption and organized crime, inviting 50 prosecutors, U.N. officials, bishops and victims of organized crime for a day of talks.
RENATE Core group member, Marie Hélène Halligon, represented RENATE at that conference and wrote her report on the conference which is available on the RENATE website, under the June listings.
On 19 July, 2017, Pope Francis reminded the world about the need to continue to pray and be vigilant about organised crime in a tweet
“We pray for all the victims of the Mafias, we ask for the strength to go on, to continue to fight against corruption.”
Preghiamo per tutte le vittime delle mafie, chiediamo la forza di andare avanti, di continuare a lottare contro la corruzione.
