Chapter Summary

This appendix section deals with Gustavo Parajón’s response to allegations that CEPAD misused donated funds to buy eleven jeeps for the Sandinista police. Concerning the allegation of the jeeps, the author emphasizes that this allegation was never proved. In addition CEPAD was carrying out development and relief work. Agencies that were donating funds demanded that these funds be used for the needs of the people affected by the war and its consequences. Funds could not be used for the promotion of any faith, and recipients could not be discriminated because of race, religion, or creed. It is difficult to explain an allegation, particularly when the principle of being innocent until proven otherwise is not followed. There are some situations, however, that might show that these accusations had no basis whatsoever.
