WHEN THE ARCHDIOCESE OF AGANA SUED ME

Posted by Tim

Prior to the two Media Releases already noted in my previous post, another Media Release was sent from the Chancery to the Media on May 13, 2016. The Release was attributed to:

Fr. Edivaldo da Silva Oliveira
ARCHDIOCESE OF AGANA, Media Relations
196 Cuesta San Ramon
Hagatna, Guam 96910-4334

In his Release, Fr. Edivaldo da Silva Oliveira, accused "they" (which is the CCOG and Tim Rohr) of:

  1. initiating "a series of lies destined to undermine the authority of the Archbishop"
  2. spreading a "series of intentional and malicious lies"
  3. causing "insults, calumnies and violence"
  4. deciding "to attack directly our Archbishop with a full-page paid advertisements in the Guam Pacific Daily News, at a cost of thousands of dollars, seeking to insinuate criminal sexual abuse by the Shepherd of the Catholic Church"
  5. attempting "to confuse and mislead the people or, even, to induce some to bring false testimony"
  6. making "insults and instilling hatred, ignorance and violence in the people"
  7. not being "Catholic nor Christian"

He then concludes:




"...the Archdiocese of Agana is in the process of taking canonical measures with the Sacra Rota – the competent canonical tribunal – and filing civil lawsuit against those perpetrating these malicious lies."

This was not a threat. This, according to Oliveira, was something the Archdiocese was already "in the process" of doing. Of course, all the "lies" Oliveira accused me and others of have now been proven NOT to be lies but facts. 

The news that the Archdiocese of Agana was already taking legal action against me caused severe disruption in my personal and business life. I will be adding Oliveira's May 13 Media Release to my suit should I choose to go forward.
