A ‘mystery donor’ to the Knights of Malta

A ‘mystery donor’ to the Knights of Malta

By Phil Lawler | Mar 23, 2017

The complicated struggle for control of the Knights of Malta has become even more mysterious, after Albrecht von Boeselager, restored to power as chancellor of the Order, spoke with the German journal Bild. The focus of the interview was a massive donation to the Knights of Malta charity, from an anonymous donor. “I do not know the donor,” Boeselager said. The National Catholic Register was reportedly threatened with a lawsuit if it even hinted at the donor’s identity. And the Knights of Malta charity had charged the donor with embezzlement—withdrawing that charge just in time to receive the funds. And if that weren’t enough to raise questions, when the Vatican set up a special commission to investigate the ouster of Boeselager as chancellor, three of the five members of the commission had close ties to the donor. Transparency, anyone?
