CANON LAWYER: "GUAM IS MAKING HISTORY."

Canon lawyers weigh in on Vatican's Guam investigation
Canon lawyer Jennifer Haselberger said she does not wish to say anything critical of the victims or their attorneys, but thinks it was a mistake not to participate in the Vatican canonical trial process. CONTINUED

  1. I disagree with Wall when he says:

    “However, do not put any faith in the canonical process because the people will never see the evidence and everything the church learns will be kept secret. The only hope for true justice to be done is through the civil justice system on island in the open,” he added.

    Justice is not guaranteed anywhere. We are all familiar with the many failings of the civil (and criminal) justice system. Plus there is a very high probability that most if not all of these claims may be settled out of court, and while they may cost Apuron a few bucks, there would be no grounds for the pope to remove him let alone laicize him.

    In this case, "justice" is defined as to what Apuron's victims wanted from the beginning: to face, Apuron, have him own up to what he did to them, and have him removed as Archbishop of Agana. The civil justice system cannot do that, only the pope can do that. And the pope is waiting for the outcome of the canonical trial, not the civil one. At 40 years distance from the crime, the only real evidence is for each of Apuron's victims to sit across the table from Cardinal Burke and have him look them in the eye as they tell their story.

    1. Unlike Haselberger, this guy Wall has an underlying motive to say only the civil courts can justice be served. He works for a law firm that is looking for clients. He's chasing the big bucks. A canonical trial won't fill his pockets with mucho dollars. He's just another outsider trying to score locally. We don't need his kind. David Lujan lives here so he will be reasonable unlike these outsiders.

    2. Dead wrong, 8:32 PM! You don't know what you're talking about.

      Wall, an ex-Benedictine monk, has a long record for vigorous support of abuse victims. The Plaintiff Superlawyer he works with, Jeff Anderson, is the biggest and most successful name in this field. Jennifer Haselberger also worked closely with Anderson on abuse victims' behalf.

    Archbishop Byrnes.

    I have a great respect for you so don't take this as personal.

    You need to start going down to Inarajan with your check book writing checks for at least 20 million.You could ask for discount and get your out of court settlement.

  5. The victims' refusal to testify will exonerate Apuron in the canonical cases and make them look unreliable in the civil ones.
