A TALE OF TWO QUITUGUAS, PART I

The Other                                                                                               The Elder 

There are two. Both are Davids. Both are Quituguas. Both are Monsignors. There the similarity ends.  One, The Elder, properly placed on the right side of the page, has distinguished himself by standing up for what is right--more about that later. The other has also distinguished himself by standing up for what is wrong.                                                                               




Monsignor David C. Quitugua, The Other, was, and maybe still is, one of Apuron's top henchmen. He was a key player in the infamous paper called Decree of Designation which was drafted, signed and recorded along with the Declaration of Deed Restriction (DDR) on November 22, 2011. It was incorporated by reference into the DDR meaning it was made a part of it. Here's the language:

I FURTHER DECREE AND ENTRUST TO THE VICAR GENERAL, MONS. DAVID C. QUITUGUA THE FULL POWER AND AUTHORITY TO PERFORM EVERY ACT AND THING WHATSOEVER THAT IS NECESSARY OR APPROPRIATE TO ACCOMPLISH THE PURPOSE HEREIN, AND I HEREBY RATIFY AND AFFIRM ALL THE VICAR GENERAL SHALL LAWFULLY DO OR CAUSE TO BE DONE BY VIRTUE OF THIS DECREE.” [all caps in the original]

The Other of course would have known that the DDR was recorded at DLM because the quoted language so required.  Apuron never informed us that he had, with the DDR, given away an asset some value at $70 million. We can expect that the Archbishop's decrees are publicized.  This one wasn't. The DDR and the Decree only came to the public's attention a little over three years later.

Almost exactly four years after he was designated in the DDR, The Other Struck again in the Umatuna Si Yu'os of November 29. He caused the publication of a bogus Certificate of Title. The memorial showing the DDR was omitted. So not only did the DDR not convey title to the RMS it didn't even exist! In the Umatuna article The Other explained how the bogus Certificate of Title showed that the Archdiocese owned the Yona property. The Other shopped the Umatuna to the PDN and got them to run a similar article on December 1 here. It would be hard for The Other to use the "Aw shucks, I didn't know," defense given the prominence of his name in the DDR.


A month ago AA Hon sent The Other to be acting rector of the seminary whereupon  he dissed the Delegate to the Apostolic Administrator and further distinguished himself by locking out the ladies.* There's more about The Other but for another post.




In fairness to Monsignor David I.A. Quitugua, i.e. The Elder, another post is required. Each of the Quituguas rates his own post, albeit for opposite reasons.                                                                                                                                                      







                                                                               
* Note to AA Hon: the Decree of Designation is still in force because you haven't revoked it. The usual Hon dilemma must now be examined.  Did Hon leave the Decree in effect because he's incompetent or because he's cunning?
