WASHINGTON - Puerto Rico’s religious leaders called for debt relief in the face of the $72 billion financial crisis burdening the Caribbean US territory. At a press conference in San Juan, leaders of the principle religious groups laid out six principles to resolve the crisis. In a statement, the clergy called on the United States Federal Reserve to intervene if Congress fails to pass bankruptcy protection to the financially strapped island.
