In a roundabout development in the search for justice in the 1989 massacre of 6 Jesuit priests, their housekeeper and her daughter by the Salvadoran military during El Salvador's Civil War, one of the accused perpetrators - ex-Colonel Inocente Orlando Montano - has been formally indicted in US immigration courts for falsifying immigration documents. If convicted, Montano faces up to 40 years in prison. Separately, Montano has also been indicted by a Spanish court along with 19 other Salvadoran military officers for perpetrating the 1989 Jesuit massacre. Spain has submitted extradition orders for the officers to the Salvadoran government. This week, the Salvadoran Supreme Court agreed to begin extradition proceedings for 13 of the 20 indicted officers.  The court is summoning the officers to hear their testimony in order to decide if the officers will be sent to trial in Spain. The accused officers are currently protected from prosecution in domestic courts under El Salvador's controversial Amnesty Law, which prohibits criminal court cases concerning Civil War human rights violations.
