El Salvador Marks Anniversary of Killing of Monsignor Romero
By Raimundo López
San Salvador, March 24
People’s and religious organizations in El Salvador mark today the 33th anniversary of the assassination of Bishop and martyr Oscar Arnulfo Romero, who always protected the poor and persecuted.
He was shot by a hired gunman while celebrating holy mass at the chapel of the Divine Providence Cancer Hospital of San Salvador. His killer has never been found.
The UN Truth Commission that investigated human rights violations during armed conflict (1980-1992) concluded in 1993 that the crime was planned by the founder of the Nationalist Republican Alliance (Arena), Maj. Roberto d’Aubisson.
In a ceremony to pay tribute to Romero yesterday, President Mauricio Funes said that “we are still waiting for justice to get to the bottom of the case and reveal the truth, not only owed to Monsignor’s relatives, but also to the Catholic Church and all the Salvadorian people.”
SAN SALVADOR, Mar 21 2013 (IPS) – A report containing the testimonies of victims of torture during El Salvador’s 1980-1992 civil war will be published 27 years after it was written, to help Salvadorans today learn more about that chapter in the country’s history: here.
EL SALVADOR’S top prosecutors said today that they were seeking the arrest of former president Francisco Flores on charges of embezzlement, illegal enrichment and disobedience: here.
On January 30, former president of El Salvador Francisco Flores Perez died in San Salvador of a cerebral hemorrhage at the age of 56. The ex-president’s career was dominated by corruption and self-enrichment at the expense of a deeply impoverished Salvadoran working class and peasantry: here.
