The certificate of title that was issued by the Department of Land Management was missing key details, Klitzkie points out.
Guam - Former Senator Bob Klitzkie is taking aim at the Department of Land Management over a certificate of title they issued to the Archdiocese of Agana that supposedly proves once and for all that they own the controversial Redemptoris Mater Seminary.

Former senator Robert Klitzkie is calling on the director of the Department of Land Management to correct what he calls a "bogus" certificate of title for the mega-million former Accion Hotel property in Yona. The area, now known as the Redemptoris Mater Seminary, has been clouded in controversy over the last year between concerned Catholics and Archbishop Anthony Apuron.
Kltzkie in a letter from late last year is asking Borja, who he lists as the ex-officio registrar of titles to address the certificate of title. "If you look at the declaration of deed restriction, the first thing you see is it dedicates the property, the Yona property, to a corporation the Redemptoris Mater Corporation in perpetuity for uses of seminary. But if you read a little farther and if you read something we refer to as the Bronze Opinion, it's more of a deed restriction, it is actually a conveyance in fee simple where the archbishop, a corporation sole, has deeded that property to a corporation of which he has no control. It's a really serious matter," he said.
Borja could not be reached for comment, whereas Father Adrien Cristobal from the Archdiocese of Agana had no comment on the letter.
