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.
.- 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.
