Lorenzetti also denied links between the Pope and dictatorship
March 18, 2013
Argentina Supreme Court President Ricardo Lorenzetti dissociated Pope Francis from military dictatorship, ensuring that there is no complaint about it.
“We must respect the presumption of innocence of Pope Francisco,” Lorenzetti said, adding he is a man who has absolutely no condemnation for his performance during the last military dictatorship.
“Beyond that there are people or someone who is unhappy or say he could have done this or that, the fact is that there is absolutely no specific complaint,” the magistrate said, who accompanied President Cristina Kirchner in the procession to Francisco-taking.
“You cannot talk about something wrong with a person absolutely innocent” Lorenzetti said, noting the former Buenos Aires archbishop’s humility, dialogue and fight against poverty; it is what the world needs now.”
The designation of Bergoglio “is a very important issue for the Argentines, beyond the position that each has in a specific aspect, should interest us all and we should all support this.”
“You have to look at what that opens to the front. If we force all together in supporting this process, which is aimed towards dialogue, to the idea of equality, the benefit of the poor, is an important door,” he said.
