St. Meinrad, Ind. Church officials praise Jesuit case ruling, say more must be done By INES PINTO ALICEA Catholic News Service WASHINGTON (CNS) -- U.S. and Salvadoran church officials said they were pleased that two army offi- cers were convicted for their involvement in the murders of six Jesuit priests, their housekeeper and her daugh- ter in E1 Salvador, but they said the convictions are just one step on a long path to truth. "We're happy that we have had an important advance in criminal justice in E1 Sal- vador, but the intellectual au- thors and at:tual shooters have gone scot fre, e," said Je- suit Father Dean Brackley, a pro|bssor at Central American Uniwu'sitv in San Salvador, where tb murders occurred. "This is a graw , error." A five-member civilian jury foun(l Army Col. Guillermo A. Benavid$s guiltv on all eight counts of murder and Lt. Yusshy Rene Mendoza guilty in the murder of 16- year-old Celina Ramos, the daughter of the Jesuits' cook. The two were accused of pro- viding the orders which led to the murders. "By convicting Benavides and Mendoza, the jury want- ed to send the signal that the responsibility for the assassi- nations should be sought higher up in the armed forces," said Father Jose Maria Tojeira, provincial gen- eral of the Jesuits in Central America, in a prepared state- ment. To find who is responsible higher up, Father Tojeira said that it is "of utmost impor- tan(:e to get U.S. intelligen(:e agel]cie, s to turn over the doc- ulne, ntatioll they have on the case,, docmnentation that they have hidden so far." Another army lieutenaflt, a non-(:ommissioned officer and five enlisted men were acquitte(] by the jury. Jesuit Father Charles L. (]urrie, who attended the trial, told The Catholic Stan- dard and Times, newspaper of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, the Jesuits were "astounded" when they heard Benavides had been convicted. "Perhaps tle verdict was a gut reaction," said Father Currie, who is rector of the Je- suit community at St. Joseph's University."They simply went for those who gave the order." Father Brackley told Catholic News Service that it is difficult to say how the rul- ing would improve the Sal- vadoran justice system since international pressttrc, and media attention really carried the case through the trial stage. Father Bracklev said Ms. Ramos' father, the universi- ty's landscat)er, was "dis(:our- aged and upset" that the sol- dier who actually shot and killed his daughter was ac- quitted. Appeals from a jury's ver- dict are not allowe(1 by Sal- vadoran law.
