Bolivia awaits information from Spain on pedophile priests


Bolivia awaits information from Spain on pedophile priests

La Paz, May 22 (Prensa Latina) Bolivia´s Attorney General Wilfredo Chávez on Monday confirmed his country is currently awaiting information requested from Spain for an investigation into the Jesuit Alfonso Pedrajas (alias Pica) indicted for pedophile,as well as other clergymen.

The prosecutor’s reference in this regard is closely related to an unrest on April 30 as the Spanish newspaper ¨El Pais¨ published a probe into the Jesuit Pica Pedrajas.

Pedrajas revealed that he abused at least 85 children and teens in vulnerable situations, most of them in Bolivia.

Born in Valencia, Spain, and died in 2009, Pica Pedrajas arrived in Bolivia as a missionary in the 1960s and worked in the schools Juan XXIII, in Cochabamba, and San Calixto, in La Paz, as well as in other school centers.
