Rome, March 21 - Horacio Verbitsky, the Argentine
journalist who fingered Pope Francis for inaction to protect
priests in his province during the military dictatorship
(1976-1983), said on Thursday that new statements by the Jesuit
priests free the pope from "any liability in their arrest and
torture by the military".
In an article in Argentina's Pagina12 daily paper where
Verbitsky originally published his accusations based on
interviews with two priests who were arrested and tortured in
the country's 'Dirty War', Orlando Yorio and Francisco Jalics,
the journalist said that Jalics first declared that he had
"reconciled with Bergoglio".
"Reconciliation is a Catholic sacrament that consists of
pardoning. However, his (Jalics') latest statements go further
and absolve Bergoglio of all responsibility," Verbitsky wrote.
Verbitsky wrote that until recently the priest believed
he had been "reported together with (Orlando) Yorio," and that
it took "a quarter of a century to come to a different
conclusion, and to be able to say that it was a mistake to blame
our capture on an initiative by Bergoglio".
