EL SALVADOR - THE CLAIM
Monsignor Oscar Arnulfo Romero, Archbishop of San Salvador, was assassinated in 1980 by death squads. Pope Francis, upon his arrival in 2013, initiated the process of his canonization, a stormy one that had divided the ecclesiastical institutions. The importance of Romero trascends that of El Salvador. In his honour, United Nations celebrates every 24th of March as the International Day for the Right to the Truth Concerning Gross Human Rights Violations and for the Dignity of Victims.
