VATICAN CITY, 7 JUL 2011 (VIS) - The Holy See Press Office has released the following note:

  "The Holy Father Benedict XVI today accepted the request presented by Cardinal Attilio Nicora to be relieved of his duties as president of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (APSA) so as to be able to dedicate all his energies to the new Financial Information Authority, which the Pope brought into being with his 'Motu Proprio' of 30 December 2010. Having begun the initial phase of establishing the new structure and taken the first steps to implement measures to counter money laundering, attention must now be given to interchange and dialogue with international institutions so that, by means of the necessary evaluations, the Holy See and Vatican City State may obtain recognition as 'a non-EU equivalent State'".
