Italian prelate kidnaps two of his own priests to be reelected

Father Renato Salvatore, the Superior General of the Order of the Camillian Ministers, was arrested last week by the Italian Police on charges of kidnapping.

Father Salvatore allegedly sent false police officers to take into “temporary custody” two priests of his own Order who were going to vote against him in the impending election to designate a new Superior General or confirm the incumbent one.

This way, the prelate managed to keep his high-ranking job… but is now in jail.
