By Tim Rohr

In today's Pacific Daily News we learned that the Archdiocese of Agana is selling two of its most valuable properties, the property occupied by the FHP Health Center across from the ITC building, and the Chancery property atop San Ramon Hill. Its other "most valuable" property, the former Seminary property in Yona, was sold a few years ago.

We also learned that Clare Delgado of Home Ventures is the listing broker for the FHP property and is the preferred broker should the Chancery property be publicly listed for sale. The listing broker for the Yona property was Liz Duenas of Remax Diamond Realty. 

So to quote a KUAM news story, "Where does Rohr fit in?" Wasn't Tim Rohr behind the "conspiracy" to oust the former Archbishop Apuron in order to profit on selling these properties as "a real estate mediator?"

From a KUAM story on June 3, 2016:

The church meanwhile is also accusing Martinez of being part of a conspiracy or the "Rohr Group" to topple the archbishop. Tim Rohr operates the JungleWatch blog, which has been critical of the archbishop over the last several years.

The church further claims Martinez, who was the former archdiocesan financial officer was incompetent in his position and for six years in a row failed to submit required financial reports to the Vatican.  The archdiocese alleges this finance council conspired to sell the Yona seminary property in order to cover their financial misdeeds. So where does Rohr fit in? (Emphases added)

According to the church they allege he had a personal interest in the plan and was supposed to be involved in the multi-million dollar sale as a real estate mediator.

And from a September 21, 2017 LA STAMPA story:

In 2012, a blog called “Jungle Watch” was created online, attacking Archbishop Apuron and the Neocatechumenal Way, accusing them of manipulating the prelate and “colonizing” the entire Agaña diocese. The site is managed by Tim Rohr, a real estate agent employed by Msgr. Benavente and involved in the projected sale of the seminary. (Note: La Stampa does not identify its source, but of course it could only have been Apuron's people.)

For my supposed role in this conspiracy, Apuron and his people planned to sue me in both civil and church courts. 

From a May 31, 2016 Pacific Daily News story:

This time around, the archdiocese’s statement has named at least one specific person and his “associates.”

“Tim Rohr and his associates launched a vicious and calumnious attack on the Archbishop and the Church,” the Archdiocese of Agana said.

“Those who are orchestrating this campaign are inciting people into hatred of the Archbishop and the Catholic Church. They have produced scandal, confusion and grave errors with the cruel intent to injure the Archbishop, the Catholic Church in Guam and many other people of good will who have been outraged and harassed. Therefore, the Archdiocese of Agana is in the process of taking canonical and legal measures against those perpetrating these malicious lies,” the Archdiocese said. (Emphases added)

 Of course they never sued me or anyone else. In fact, at the time of these stories, Apuron had already run away and was caught on camera in Rome trying to cozy up to Pope Francis. And we all now know the rest of the story.

Meanwhile, instead of monstrously profiting off the sale of these properties as "a real estate mediator," I not only have never made a dime - because I never was involved in that way to begin with, but my role in outing decades of previously unimaginable horrific abuse has cost me tens of thousands of dollars, which is a story I will save for another day.
