Vatican City, 8 May 2014 (VIS) – The following is the full text of a communique published today by the Governorate of Vatican City State.
“In recent days there has been a series of troubling reports regarding companies which, boasting official assignments received by the Governorate of Vatican City State, are offering false contracts for employment by the same Governorate or with other companies providing services within the State.
The Governorate advises that all offers of employment of this type be regarded with suspicion. Recruitment procedures are never entrusted to third parties and, furthermore, new appointments are not expected at this time.
It is sadly evident that there are those who take advantage of the good faith of many young people and their families, especially in this period of crisis.
The Governorate advises that episodes of this type be reported to the competent Italian authorities and that a copy of the report be forwarded to the Vatican Gendarmeria, and expresses its hope that these serious offences will cease”.
