CERTIFICATE OF TITLE FIASCO - PART 7

Continued from Part 6

Moving forward and building our case, in this installment we will discuss WHAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE BLANK MEMORIAL.

But first, let us review. 

On November 29, 2015, Msgr. David C. Quitugua, the Vicar General for the Archdiocese of Agana published a copy of the certificate of title for LOT 90-2-R1-RNEW-R3, one of the four lots which make up the property currently occupied by the Redemptoris Mater Seminary. (Clean copy here.)

The copy of the certificate was dated October 30, 2015 and signed by Andrew Santos, Deputy Registrar of Titles. 

The copy was published with a supporting story on the front page of the U Matuna, the newspaper of the Archdiocese of Agana. In the story, Msgr. David C. Quitugua is reported as saying: 
“These certificates establish that the Archdiocese of Agana by Most Rev. Anthony S. Apuron, OFM, Cap., D.D., Archbishop of Agana, maintains legal ownership of the Seminary property, and it is only the Archdiocese through the mechanisms of Canon Law that will determine the transfer or conveyance of this property. Of course all transaction must be civilly legally recorded and registered.” 
On December 1, 2015, the Pacific Daily News ran a supporting news story entitled "Archdiocese shows ownership for former hotel."

The published copy of the certificate was bogus since the Declaration of Deed Restriction, recorded at Land Management on November 22, 2011, was NOT recorded in the Memorial of Estates. 

Here is what the Memorial of Estates section on the copy of the Certificate of Title published by Msgr. David C. Quitugua in the U Matuna on November 29, 2015 should have looked like:



Here is what the Memorial of Estates section on the copy of the Certificate of Title published by Msgr. David C. Quitugua in the U Matuna on November 29, 2015 actually showed:



Given the date this was signed by the Deputy Registrar of Titles:




And the date the copy of the false certificate of title was published in the U Matuna (November 29, 2015), a whole month later:


There is NO WAY Msgr. David C. Quitugua, Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Agana DID NOT know that the copy of the certificate of title he procured from Mr. Santos was missing the entry of the Declaration of Deed Restriction in the Memorial of Estates, ESPECIALLY since he was given full authority over the property in the Decree of Designation attached to the Declaration of Deed Restriction recorded on November 22, 2011:


Here's what Guam law says about those who tamper with public records:



P.S. I believe anyone can see that not only are Apuron, David, and Adrian willing to lie to you - something proven over and over again, they are now so desperate as to be willing to break the law. Just remember that before you even think about giving a penny to their sham "appeal."
