Judge Fernando Andreu made his order on 6 February in response to a suit by a Barcelona lawyer, Jordi Palou-Loverdos, acting for the families of nine dead Spaniards: Father Joaquim Vallmajo, killed in April 1994; four Marist brothers murdered in Bukavu, Congo-Kinshasa, in 1996; three members of non-governmental agency Medicos del Mundo, killed in 1997; and Father Isidro Uzcudun, killed in June 2000.
