'Pope can open doors to know where the disappeared are,' Estela de Carlotto
The head of the Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo organization, Estela de Carlotto, assured that Pope Francis “can open doors to know where the disappeared are.”
“We moved forward with a reality (the Pope’s designation) that we think may help open doors to know where the rest of the grandchildren and the 30,000 disappeared are,” she said.
Carlotto referred to the controversy created by the Pope’s role during the last dictatorship and assured that “they remain confident”.
“Our arms and hearts are open to listen and if he has to give any explanations before History, it is up to that person.”
Regarding the organization’s position to the new Pope, she replied that so far the matter has been “wrongly explained, misreported and even misshaped.”
