Paolo Cipriani and his deputy, Massimo Tulli, stepped down "in the interest of the institute and the Holy See", according to the Vatican. Cipriani was under investigation by prosecutors in Rome for alleged violations of Italy's anti-money laundering laws after $30 million was seized from a Vatican account at a bank in Rome. The bank is known as the Institute for Religious Works and is still under the glare of prosecutors and even Pope Francis.
