Pope Francis's Closest Advisor Maradiaga "had Protected a Pedophile Priest from Costa Rica" and said: ""I would be willing to go to Jail before Harming one of my [Accused Pedophile] Priests"

Italian journalist and Vatican expert Emiliano Fittipaldi in his book, Lussuria. Peccati scandali e tradimenti di una Chiesa fatta di uomini (Lust. Sins, Scandals, and Betrayal of a Church Made of Men) says that Pope Francis's closest advisor and “vice-pope" Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga “had protected a pedophile priest from Costa Rica, a fugitive from Interpol" according Fittipaldi in a interview with comunidadculturaearte.com which intmass media.com explains in detail:

"Few know that between 2003 and 2004, the cardinals were taken in one of the dioceses under the supervision of the Archdiocese of Tegucigalpa in Honduras, the priest, accused by the police of Costa Rica in sexual harassment. Hiding a criminal, don Enrique Vasquez (Enrique Vasquez) was wanted by Interpol since 1998: on the run between Nicaragua, new York, Connecticut, and a sanatorium for priests in Mexico, don Enrique a few months would be hiding in Guinope where he will get a parish, under the control of the Archdiocese of Maradiaga. Journalist Brooks Egerton (Brooks Egerton) says that at the time he was able to interview the Secretary of Maradiaga for the newspaper Dallas Morning News, which did not deny the presence of a pedophile, but minimized his role in the parish. In effect the cardinal, however, did not want to answer his questions. “How to tell the Interpol agent, who I interviewed, officials of the diocese realized that they had problems with don Enrique, and got rid of it,” suggests Eggerton."

Francis's closest advisor Maradiaga said he opposes bishops turning in pedophile priests over to civil authorities for investigation and prosecution. "[I] would be willing to go to jail before harming one of my priests":

"Maradiaga... a year before the arrival of Vazquez in his diocese, in an open conference in Rome, he explained that even when dealing with a priest accused of pedophilia, it would “would rather go to jail than to harm one of my priests… For me it would be a tragedy to reduce the role of the pastor to the function of the police. We must not forget that we are pastors, not agents of the FBI or the CIA.”
