From Wikipedia:

Nevertheless, there are many politicians and people in El Salvador who continue to revere the memory of D'Aubuisson. The current president of El Salvador, Antonio Saca, commemorated on January 20, 2007 the anniversary of the death of D'Aubuisson, and promised to continue with the ARENA party based on D'Aubuisson's ideology and legacy.

While D'Aubuisson was never convicted during his lifetime of any crimes, former United States Ambassador Robert White, a D'Aubuisson critic, told Congress in 1986 that there had been sufficient evidence to convict D'Aubuisson of planning and ordering Romero's murder. White also described D'Aubuisson as a "pathological killer". Both the UN Commission for Truth [6] and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights[7], in the aftermath of the civil war, determined that D'Aubuisson "gave the order to assassinate the Archbishop" to a group of military officers and attempted to assassinate Judge Atilio Ramírez Amaya "to deter investigation of the case."
