A senior Vatican official said he is “truly surprised” that the Bank of Italy ordered credit card payments suspended in the tiny city-state

The Vatican has been cash-only since January 1 after Italy's central bank compelled Deutsche Bank Italia to stop providing electronic payment services to the Holy See.

The Bank of Italy said in a statement this week it had no choice but to order the block because the Vatican has no banking regulatory framework or EU-recognized alternative for anti-money-laundering purposes.

In truth, the Council of Europe's Moneyval committee found some serious problems in the Vatican's anti-money laundering efforts.

Then last year, under pressure from the Bank of Italy, JPMorgan closed its IOR accounts. Now, Deutsche Bank has halted its 15-year term providing electronic payment services to the Vatican.

Cash only at the Vatican....

Serves them right..
