Italian prosecutors talk to ex-Vatican banker about MPS

(see related story) Rome, January 31 - The former head of the Vatican bank, Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, was questioned on Thursday by prosecutors investigating suspect operations at the troubled Monte dei Paschi di Siena (MPS) bank. The prosecutors wanted to talk to Gotti Tedeschi about MPS's nine-billion-euro acquisition of Antonveneta in 2008 from Spanish bank Santander. Gotti Tedeschi was in charge of Santander's operations in Italy before becoming president of the Vatican Bank, the Institute for Religious Works (IOR), in 2009. The IOR's board ousted him from that post last year.
