Mexico: smear campaign alleged against murdered priests

September 27, 2016

A spokesman for the Archdiocese of Mexico City said that state governments have engaged in a smear campaign against three recently murdered priests.

“In these cases it has become clear that state governments that cannot handle the drug cartels are criminalizing the victims, depicting some [priests] as drunks and another as a pedophile, making it look like the crimes were not related to drug cartels but because of some immoral conduct,” said Father Valdemar Romero, according to the Associated Press.
