Since the beginning, Archbishop Apuron claimed that he was going to seek a canonical trial. Tim Rohr, on the other hand, stated that there was no canonical trial and that the Archbishop ran away. On May 13, 2016, Archbishop Apuron responded to a sex abuse ad that was placed in the newspaper by Tim Rohr and CCOG. You can read the Archbishop's response here. According to Archbishop Apuron:
.......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."
It was Rohr who convinced people that there was no canonical trial and that the Archbishop ran away. Therefore, it would not be surprising to find if Rohr had something to do with convincing Archbishop Byrnes to exile his brother bishop by declaring his return a disaster. After all, Rohr already admitted to participating in a secret meeting. How many secret meetings were held?
