Mexican prelate hopeful officials will uncover motive behind assassination of Cardinal Posadas

.- The Archbishop of Guadalajara, Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iñíguez, expressed his hope this week that interrogations of three leaders of the Mexican mafia who are currently in prison the United States would reveal the motive behind the death of Cardinal Juan Jesus Posadas, who was killed thirteen years ago.

The US government has authorized Mexican officials to meet with Everardo Arturo Paez on June 9.  A date has not been set yet for meeting with the other two men convicted in the crime, Juan Garcia Abrego and Alberto Bayardo.

During a press conference, Cardinal Sandoval said that when the motive for the assassination is uncovered, the cause for beatification of Cardinal Posadas could be opened.

“In a cause of beatification of a martyr, the motive of his death must be very clear.  We hope that the work officials are planning to carry out will clarify the motive behind the assassination of the cardinal, in order to ascertain the possibility of introducing his cause,” he said.

“The bishops’ conferences both in North America and South America are aware of this assassination, of this crime of the State, and they have expressed the desire that the cause be introduced,” Cardinal Sandoval explained.
