Nasty story from Catholic News Agency April 28, 2010:
Identifies sex crime victim by name when victim was Juan Doe in lawsuit. Then denies the rapes happened: Accusations against Mexican cardinal are false, asserts archdiocese
AND in Latin American Herald Tribune:
MEXICO CITY – The Catholic archdiocese of Mexico City on Thursday blasted the lawsuit filed this week in U.S. federal court accusing Cardinal Archbishop Norberto Rivera of shielding a pedophile priest.The suit “is nothing more than a media and opportunistic deception, taking advantage of the adverse environment the Catholic Church is suffering because of the criminal behavior of some bad priests,” said the archdiocese in a communique sent on Thursday to Efe. Aguilar is accused in the complaint of committing sexual crimes against a Mexican boy in the mid-1990s, while the Mexico City and Los Angeles archbishops are alleged to have facilitated Aguilar’s transfer from Mexico to the United States, where he continued his abuses.
The Mexico City archdiocese said Rivera “has never eluded justice” in other cases presented against him in the United States, in which he “was exonerated because of the lack of jurisdiction of the U.S. court and because no evidence of his guilt was found.”
