Ellacuría, Crimen Sin Castigo

Last Sunday, the Spanish television program "En Portada" aired a segment on the assassination of Jesuit priest Ignacio Ellacuría and his colleagues, their housekeeper and the housekeeper's daughter at the Universidad Centroamericana "José Simeón Cañas" in El Salvador almost 20 years ago on November 16, 1989, the lack of effort to bring the guilty parties to justice in El Salvador, and the current attempt to prosecute this case in the Spanish courts. It also shows the socio-economic conditions in El Salvador on the 20th anniversary of this crime.

The program can be viewed in its entirety (45 minutes) on RTVE's Web site here: Ellacuría, Crimen Sin Castigo. WARNING: This program contains some very graphic and disturbing violent images. It's also very thorough and well produced.
