The Archdiocese of Agana makes it official. In a release to media on Tuesday, Apostolic Administrator Savio Hon Tai Fai issues a revised policy on Sexual Misconduct. Should the Archbishop stand as the accused, the policy states he must recuse himself from proceedings immediately. Then the Moderator of the Curia must present the case to the Holy See via the Apostolic Delegate in the Pacific Oceania and keep the Chancellor’s Office as well as the Presbyteral Council informed. Archbishop Hon was appointed by the Vatican to care for the Archdiocese of Agana amid allegations of molestation made against Archbishop Anthony Apuron who has been placed on leave.
