Archdiocese: Apuron in full control of Accion property
As you well know, “alienation” and “assignment” are words of distinction without a difference. Any documents containing these words would place a huge cloud on title to real property which would result in a protracted litigation and prohibitive cost to remove such cloud. Do you really want to risk title to the property conservatively valued at 75 million dollars? - email from Atty. Edward Terlaje to Richard Untalan and the finance councill, 11/27/2011 https://www.scribd.com/doc/252072351/Terlaje-Email
Notice the date, 11/27/2011. Notice the date the Deed Restriction was recorded: 11/22/11. Atty. Terlaje and the finance council are not only unaware that Apuron has already recorded the Deed Restriction, he obviously proceeded against the advice of his legal counsel and without the approval of the finance council which is required by church law, and when involving transactions of property valued over one million dollars, also require approval from the Vatican.
PDN: And while the "deed of restriction" document Apuron signed in 2011 allows the Redemptoris Mater Seminary "perpetual use of the property," the archdiocese stated, in part, that "the archbishop can designate it for other use in the future."
The Board of Guarantors has a veto or approval power for the most important affairs of the Corporation.
PDN: The archdiocese's statement to the media contends that the seminary's directors and guarantors "are appointed exclusively by ... the archbishop, and he can change them whenever there is need."
2. The members will be the same as the Pastoral Council as foreseen in the canonical statutes of the Seminary, presided furthermore by the Archbishop. In particular, the Neocatechumenal responsible Team for the United States is part of this Board.
PDN: A donation to the archdiocese allowed it to snap up the former hotel more than a decade ago for $2 million. The property cost $57 million to develop, but a business sold it after it failed as a hotel operation.
PDN: According to the archdiocese's statement yesterday, the donation to purchase the former hotel was through the efforts of the Neocatechumenal Way -- "not the other way around."
“The purpose of the Corporation shall be limited to the following: to establish and conduct a Seminary to prepare men for the priesthood for the evangelization, following the life and itinerary of the Neocatechumenal Way…”
