.- In an exclusive interview with CNA, Cardinal Juan Sandoval Íñiguez of Guadalajara revealed that the Church is aware of who murdered his predecessor, Cardinal Juan Jesus Posadas Ocampo 13 years ago.

“Yes. We already know who… and why,” the Cardinal told CNA.  “We have many private confessions of the people and private investigations. There are two lawyers working with me since the murder of the Cardinal 13 years ago.”

The prelate continued, “The politicians who were involved in drug trafficking, ordered the killings, that is the reason why.”

When asked if the Vatican is kept informed of this case, Sandoval answered affirmatively.  “The Vatican is very well informed. I have two lawyers who tell the Secretary of State what is going on. Cardinal Bertone, at the Holy See in Rome, is very interested and I understand that he will try to ask the government of Mexico to come out into the light.”

Cardinal Posadas Ocampo was murdered in 1993 at the Guadalajara Airport when gunmen, armed with automatic weapons, attacked him in his car.  The case has been reopened several times, however no one has been imprisoned.
