"We want to inform that on Monday we have received, via International Cooperation, the diary of the priest Alfonso Pedrajas..."
On Tuesday, Juan Lanchipa, Attorney General of Bolivia, denounced that the Catholic Church has not complied with the commitment to cooperate with the investigations of pederasty, as in the case of the Spanish Jesuit Alfonso Pedrajas.
"We want to inform that on Monday we have received, via International Cooperation, the diary of the priest Alfonso Pedrajas. The Catholic Church has previously sent this diary to the Prosecutor's Office, but with erasures, and we have evidenced that those names correspond to names, dates and places. This shows that the Church has not complied with its commitment to cooperate in the investigation", said Lanchipa in a press conference.
According to Lanchipa, a copy of the newspaper sent from Spain was sent to the Departmental Prosecutor's Office of Cochabamba, so that they can proceed with the investigations based on its contents.
The Prosecutor's Office previously stated that this information was incomplete, as there were missing pages in the diary, jumping from page two to page 32, and much of the text was erased.
Lanchipa has also revealed the existence of another diary belonging to another Spanish Jesuit, Luis Roma Padrosa, in which he narrates events committed against children, and provides names and places of the abuses.
