Duarte Cancino, Isaias

Duarte Cancino, Isaias
▪ 2003

      Colombian cleric (b. Feb. 15, 1939, San Gil, Colom.—d. March 16, 2002, Cali, Colom.), was archbishop of Cali from 1995 and an outspoken critic of Colombian guerrillas and drug traffickers. Duarte was slain by two gunmen outside a church where he had just presided over a wedding ceremony. After serving as a parish priest, Duarte was appointed bishop of Germania de Numidia in 1985 and three years later became bishop of Apartadó. After his elevation to archbishop, he fiercely condemned the country's two major guerrilla groups, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia and the National Liberation Army (ELN). After the ELN kidnapped more than 150 persons from a Cali church in 1999, Duarte publicly excommunicated all ELN members. Just days before his assassination, he had accused congressional candidates of using drug money to support their campaigns.
