The story of Emanuela Orlandi sounds like a crook story from the Vatican.
And she comes from a place that seems like a dictatorship, if you look at the structure of the Vatican.
The Roman Catholic Church has been following a course for decades that, as in any dictatorship, only supplies the top of the food chain. Water is preached and wine is drunk.
Now the church in Rome is a 2000-year-old ship that is difficult to steer in another direction.
But what happened in the case of Emanuela Orlandi is indicative of the criticism that keeps hitting the Vatican.
One might assume that God's representatives on earth are diligent not only to impart the faith, but also to live according to God's commandments.
Yes, the church has skeletons in its closet.
The mysterious disappearance of the then 15-year-old girl in 1983 has been one of the most hotly debated criminal cases in the Italian Republic for 36 years.
One thinks of the other right-wing clubs that could form in the Vatican's bacon belt.
Not only was the morality of theology lost through the fall of Emanuela Orlandi, but the foundations of the Church in Rome were also shaken. It is obvious that the Vatican knows more about the case of Orlandi and that of Mirella Gregori, who was missing a few weeks earlier.
On several occasions, coffins were opened in investigations conducted rather carelessly by the Vatican authorities. Mortal remains of Emanuela Orlandi were not found at any of the openings.
One preferred to pray rather than investigate.
The Vatican did everything possible to cover up the case. Which does not reflect well on the popes since. The brother, of the missing girl has been looking for 36 years, never gave up searching for his sister. Even an Italian examining magistrate, who was by no means one of the sellers of early fake news, thought that Orlandi, who was once seen again in a BMW after the crime, was in the clutches of secret services of the former Warsaw Pact.
It was a Cold War era.
Until now, however, it has not been clarified whether the two girls knew each other. Emanuela was a Vatican citizen, which did not prevent the Vatican from doing nothing but pious sayings on the matter. It is not enough even for the Church to say that "Emanuela is in heaven", said Pope Francis a few months ago.
Especially since it was clear initially that mafia-like structures within the church were to be covered, which extended as far as the scandal banker Roberto Calvi, who had been found hanged under a bridge in London in 1982, and who had excellent relations with the head of the Vatican Bank, Paul Marcinkus, and who had served him in the management of the phantom banks in the Bahamas for many years. Marcinkus was a professional in laying fake tracks that led nowhere.
Mirella Gregori disappeared not far away, under almost the same circumstances as Emanuela Orlandi. Since then, there have been countless rumours. One thought Emanuela was in a monastery in Belgium, then again in Turkey or Iraq.
The girl could not be considered as blackmailing goods for the papal offender either.
So, where are the girls who were apparently kidnapped in connection with the circumstances of the Vatican Bank.
There were countless leads in this case, including Opus Dei, the dreaded secret lodge of the Vatican, the Mafia and a gang operating in Rome, which at the time was making the streets of the Italian capital unsafe.
Similarly, the Bulgarian Secret Service was suspected because of the papal assassin Mehmet Ali Ağca, who carried out an assassination attempt on the newly elected John Paul II in St. Peter's Square in early 1981. The assassin had already murdered the editor-in-chief of the Turkish newspaper Milliyet, Abdi Ipekçi, in his radical right-wing views. This circumstance was completely lost in the investigation.
In addition, a committee of inquiry of the Italian parliament found out that Ali A?ca, who gave contradictory information about his motive, was arrested at the behest of the then CPSU chairman Brezhnev, with the help of the GRU, its East German counterpart Stasi and the Bulgarian Intelligence. Shortly after the mysterious death of Pope John Paul I, the first rumours of a connection to the then unbalanced Vatican Bank emerged.
John Paul I. was already found dead in mysterious circumstances and the voices never wanted to silence that the pontiff was murdered. Here, too, traces of the Vatican's dirty money transactions have been found in connection with the drug mafia and Paul Macinkus. Macinkus is said to have given the order, according to a witness from the 1980s, Emanuela Orlandi. Whether this happened because of the Vatican banking business or because the girl was involved in sex parties cannot be traced any more. Witnesses testified immediately after the young woman's disappearance that she was taken to a vehicle. Macinkus, one of the puppet masters in the Vatican, died in the USA in 2006. He was never brought to justice.
It was only later that documents in the form of a 14-year statement of account from 1983-1997, which testified to costs of about 250,000 euros for the disappeared Emanuela, appeared in a vault in the Vatican.
At first, it was not clear whether these documents were not a fake for money laundering or a complete forgery, but the accounts speak a language of their own, with 25,000 euros allegedly referring to the "final act", the death of the girl.
Only after this time did the Vatican reluctantly want to start an investigation into the girl, who has now been missing for more than 36 years. There is no interest in this. In these days another grave is to be opened at the German cemetery in Rome, where the girl is suspected. It will again be a gruelling wrong track, suspect journalists who have been observing events in Rome for years.
The Vatican must first prove its truthfulness and reveal the girl's story before the parties involved remain silent for further decades.
