Resignations In Guam’s Catholic Church Review Board

Potential conflict of interest in sex abuse allegation case

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, May 23, 2016) – Two senior members of Guam's Catholic Church have resigned from the archdiocese review board amid sexual abuse allegations against an Archbishop.

The Pacific Daily News reported the members resigned citing a conflict of interest as the board is likely to be called upon to review allegations against Archbishop Anthony Apuron.

52-year-old Roy Quintanilla alleges he was abused by Bishop Apuron when he was an altar boy more than 40 years ago, and says he knows of other victims.

Bishop Apuron has rejected the accusations.
