In 2008, the Center for Justice and Accountability (CJA) filed a criminal case in Madrid against former Salvadoran President Alfredo Cristiani Burkard and 14 former military officers for their role in the murder of six Jesuit priests, their housekeeper and her 16 year-old daughter in 1989. CJA is an international human rights organization dedicated to deterring torture and other severe human rights abuses around the world and advancing the rights of survivors to seek truth, justice and redress.
