A court in Argentina has convicted a former Roman Catholic police  chaplain 
of collaborating in murders during the country's military rule.  
Christian Von Wernich, 69, was convicted for involvement in seven murders, 42 
 abductions and 31 cases of torture during the 1976-83 "Dirty War".  
Survivors say he passed confessions he obtained from prisoners to the police. 
  
As he was sentenced, Father Von Wernich showed no emotion. Protesters torched 
 his effigy outside the court.
