New Pope hid Argentine prisoners from human rights investigators

The Guardian in 2011 documents how Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, now Pope, colluded with the Argentine dictatorship and hid prisoners from human rights investigators

He recounts how the Argentinian navy with the connivance of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio hid from a visiting delegation of the Inter-American Human Rights Commission the dictatorship’s political prisoners. Bergoglio was hiding them in nothing less than his holiday home in an island called El Silencio in the River Plate. The most shaming thing for the church is that in such circumstances Bergoglio’s name was allowed to go forward in the ballot to chose the successor of John Paul II. What scandal would not have ensued if the first pope ever to be elected from the continent of America had been revealed as an accessory to murder and false imprisonment

And now he is Pope.

Update: The Guardian has now sanitized the original article. For shame.
