Rome, March 21 - Argentine Nobel Peace Prize
laureate Adolfo Perez Esquivel said on Thursday that Pope
Francis had no connections with the dictatorship that marred his
home country in the 1970s.
Following an audience with Pope Francis, Esquivel told
reporters that the former archbishop of Buenos Aires "had
nothing to do with the dictatorship...he was not an accomplice".
The pope said that "human rights are integral, not only
restricted to the murders of a dictatorship, but also to
poverty...and the life of people," Esquivel underlined.
Pope Francis "preferred a quiet diplomacy," he said.
Since his election to the papacy, allegations have
surfaced that Francis was complicit in violence carried out
against left-wing activists and militants during his time as the
Jesuit Provincial superior of Argentina.
