Guilio Mattietti, who was abruptly ousted from his post as deputy director of the Vatican bank, says that he still does not know the reasons for his removal. Mattietti—who was escorted from his office on November 27—has written to the supervisory board of the Institute for Religious Works, complaining that his reputation has been damaged by speculation about his firing, and asking for an explanation. He has not yet received a reply.
