DAVID THE VG: NOW YOU SEE IT, NOW YOU DON'T - PART 1

On Sunday, November 29, 2015, the First Sunday of Advent, Msgr. David C. Quitugua published a false public document in the archdiocesan newspaper, the U Matuna.

The publication of the false document is only the latest chapter in a years-long effort to hide a mega-million dollar swindle from the Catholic faithful of the Archdiocese of Agana, the general public, and even the Vatican.

Go here to see a clean copy of the certificate

The false public document is a copy of a recently issued certificate of title for real property currently occupied by the Redemptoris Mater Seminary.

The document is false because the deed recorded by Archbishop Apuron on November 22, 2011, "restricting" the property for use by RMS and the Blessed Diego Institute "for perpetual use" is MISSING from the the memorial of estates section of the certificate. 

Never mind the actual effect of the deed ("an absolute conveyance in fee simple") - we will deal with that separately. The deed, even if it only "restricted" the property's use and left the ownership of the Archbishop of Agana intact - as Quitugua claims in the accompanying news story - the deed is still an encumbrance on the property and is required by Guam law to have been recorded:
The registrar shall note at the end of the certificate, original and duplicate, in such a manner as to show and preserve their priorities, the particulars of all estates, mortgages, liens, encumbrances, and charges to which the owner's title is subject. (21 GCA § 29124)
YET, IT WAS NOT!

Now why would that be?

Since our discovery of the secretly recorded deed in January of last year, Apuron and his crooks have spent endless effort and money trying to prove that the Archbishop of Agana is still the owner of the property. They published three separate front page stories in the U Matuna trying to prove this:
In addition, Apuron and his crooks have attempted to defend their position several times in the secular press. Last April, Apuron even went so far as to hire an expensive Denver-based legal firm, Lewis Roca Rothgerber LLP, to defend his position that he is still the "owner" of the Yona property.

Yet, when it came to actually showing the public the certificate of title, the much contested deed suddenly DOES NOT EXIST? So its "Now you see it, now you don't"??? Really?

So how did that happen?

Certificates of Title are issued by the Registrar of Titles or his/her deputy. Could the Registrar really have missed a deed with mega-million dollar consequences? If so, then all of you who think you own property better run down to Land Management to see if you still own it!

We are left with only one choice. Either the Registrar is dangerously incompetent or the certificate was doctored....and I don't mean after David got it.
