Artiga-Purcell Joins Delegation to El Salvador for Anniversary of Jesuit Massacre
In November 2014, CPM’s Camilo Artiga-Purcell participated in a delegation to El Salvador led by the Center for Justice and Accountability (“CJA”). CJA is a human rights organization dedicated to deterring torture and seeking justice for victims. The delegation to El Salvador commemorated the 25th anniversary of the 1989 Jesuit Massacre at the Jesuit University in San Salvador and called on the new government to cooperate with the Spanish National Court’s investigation of the massacre. The 20 member delegation met with Salvadoran Vice President Oscar Ortiz and other senior government officials to discuss human rights, immigration, and the Jesuit Massacre Case, which was filed before the Spanish National Court in 2008.
