El Salvador's Supreme Court has described the killings as a crime against humanity, but the case of the massacre of six Jesuit priests and two women on Nov. 16, 1989 - a notorious episode in that Central American country's civil war - remains shrouded in impunity.

In April 2018, a "peace court" ordered the reopening of an investigation aimed at determining all of the masterminds of this crime, although no significant progress has been made thus far.
