Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 2 Num. 90

("Quid coniuratio est?")

[CN Editor -- I cannot vouch for the accuracy of all of the following. It may or may not be true, I just don't know.]

[The following is a transcript of a recorded phone message put out by a group in Chicago called "Citizens' Committee to Clean Up the Courts [CCCC]." (312) 731-1100 and (312) 731-1505.]

Hi! Sherman Skolnick, Citizens' Committee to Clean Up the Courts, 9800 Oglesby.

Historically, the Chicago suburb of Cicero has been a notorious Mafia stronghold -- similar to Palermo, Sicily. Cicero Catholic bishop Paul Marcinkas(sp?) went on to the Vatican where, for a number of years, he was head of the Vatican Bank.

Over the years, various proceedings of the Republic of Italy and elsewhere brought up about Marcinkas' reported role with the Vatican in "washing" bloody assassination and other "dirty tricks" funds for the American CIA, as well as for gangster groups from Sicily and elsewhere! Involved have been reported drug smuggling of billions of dollars!

Some press reports say Italy wants the U.S. to return Marcinkas for a trial implicating him in reported massive criminal enterprises. The Italian consul-general here, however, would have to be informed:

I can inquire to see if there has been an extradition proposed, if there was some article in the Italian press. I, and this must be, I didn't see anything in the Italian press to that effect. But I might [unclear] article elsewhere.

He was formerly the head of the Vatican...

I know...

...the Vatican Bank.

I know... Reverend Marcinkas. Yes, I know very well.

...he lives in the Chicago area.

Yes, that too. But...

Does he still have immunity from the Vatican while living here?

What does "immunity from the Vatican"...

Well in other words, that he's not subject to the rules of the Republic of Italy.

Well sir, this is a very specific question; I'm not able to answer that. I say that if there is a trial on, there will be, there will be decisions made and [unclear] formed. But you understand that this is not something that we are, huh- huh, monitoring and following closely.

In other words, if the Republic of Italy wished Marcinkas to be returned or extradited, I suppose the consul-general here, like yourself, would have to be informed in some way.

Yes. But we haven't received any information to that effect.

I wonder...

The position of Mr. Marcinkas, the Reverend... Bishop Marcinkas, by the way, is, has in the past been related to given events, etcetera. But I am not, huh-huh, especially informed [on] the matter. It's not a matter that consul- generals of Italy do handle.

The office of Catholic Archbishop of Chicago wanted to be non- committal on the matter as well:

...a news item that the Republic of Italy would like Bishop Marcinkas to return to Italy. What about that? He has, for awhile, been living in the Chicago area.

No, that's not my understanding, sir. Archbishop Marcinkas is a priest of the archdiocese of Chicago. But it's my understanding he does not live in the Chicago area. He's retired. And I'm sorry, his address is not listed in our directory of priests. So my only assumption is that, because he's retired and because he hasn't led a very public life in Rome for many years, that his name is not listed and a way of contacting him is not listed.

Despite that, another church spokesperson did give Marcinkas' current address:


What was that again?



Briarwood Circle. And that's Sun City, Arizona.

Marcinkas has been the dominant force behind the reported criminal enterprise known as the First National Bank of Cicero, taken over by Pinnacle Bank Group, which in turn is operating the Bank of Credit and Commerce International [BCCI]. False press reports say the infamous BCCI is defunct. Oh yeah?? Yet Pinnacle is operating as their alter-ego. Household International, and their units, Household Banks, reportedly aided Marcinkas and his dope [money] laundering.
