Almudena Bernabeu: Pursuing Justice: Trial for the 1989 Jesuit Murders in El Salvador
On November 16, 1989, an elite unit of the Salvadoran Army entered the grounds of a Jesuit university in San Salvador, with orders to kill a priest who was critical of the military dictatorship, and leave no witnesses. The soldiers murdered six priests — the rector of the university and five professors — their housekeeper, and her daughter in cold blood. This year, Inocente Orlando Montano, who was El Salvador’s Vice Minister of Defense and Public Safety in 1989 and helped instigate the attack, was put on trial in Spain for his part in the murders.
