The US has extradited former Salvadoran military officer Inocente Orlando Montano to Spain, where he faces charges for his alleged involvement in planning the 1989 massacre of 6 Jesuit priests and 2 others in El Salvador. A US court ruled last year that the evidence demonstrated his involvement in the plot, and this month the US Supreme Court dismissed his request that his extradition be stayed.
El Salvador has declined Spain’s requests for the extradition of other former officers allegedly involved in the killings.
