Esquivel says pope not connected to past Argentine dictator
Nobel laureate says compatriot preferred 'quiet diplomacy'21 March, 14:34
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.
