Cardinal Juan Luis

Cardinal called to murder trial

Dr. Ian R. K. Paisley

A Peruvian cardinal has been called to give evidence in an inquiry into the murder of nine students.

Anti-corruption Judge Josė Luis Lecaros summoned Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani Thorne, the Archbishop of Lima, as a witness in a case, after former Justice Minister Alberto Bustamante claimed he heard ex-spy chief Vladimire Montesinos, then a presidential adviser, say that the cardinal had knowledge of the 1992 killings by a paramilitary group of nine students and a professor of La Cantuta University.

The summons took place 48 hours after the cardinal criticised apparent abuses by the Ministry of Justice in the fight against corruption. The local press has described the summons as an act of "vengeance".

Cardinal Cipriani dismissed the accusations during a celebration attended by Peruvian President Alejandro Toledo, and said he would not let his dignity or that of the Catholic Church be "trampled".
