.- Archbishop Fernando Saenz Lacalle has called for a thorough investigation into the gruesome murder of three Salvadoran lawmakers and their driver who were in Guatemala to participate in the Central American Parliament.
Representatives Eduardo D’Aubuisson, William Pichinte, and Juan Ramon Gonzalez, together with their driver, were killed by more than 15 gunmen on February 19 as they were driving through a poor section of Guatemala City. Afterwards the gunmen set fire to their car and burned their remains.
Eduardo D'Aubuisson was the son of Robert D’Aubuisson, who a UN commission named as responsible for ordering the death of Archbishop Oscar Romero.
“There must be a full investigation of the facts, the background and the consequences,” the archbishop said during a press conference after Sunday Mass.
Archbishop Saenz said he supported a plan by the government of El Salvador to request assistance from the FBI for the investigation.
He said assistance from international organizations in the investigation would be essential.
