Catholics in the Mindanao province of the Philippines remain suspicious that powerful political figures were involved in the October 17 killing of Father Fausto Tentorio.
Police have charged one man, Jimmy Ato, in connection with the murder. But Ato claims that he was a minor player in a larger plot to kill the Italian missionary priest, who had angered developers in the region.
