Dear Brother Ken,
Sweet Greetings in the Name of our Saviour.
I received your letter along with
a copy of Brother Rody's letter to you.
I appreciate him pleading forgiveness from you.
Getting the points of his letter, again to my dismay that Brother Rody
is really a headstrong. On his previous letters, we did not present our
side but now to be fair, I want to react and give information what had
really transpired and give some comments also.
- "Rody claims that he was
so much pressured in signing the July 6, 1996
joint affidavit and had overlooked the contents."
Nobody pressured him to sign and he did not overlook it. Brother Rody
even dictated to Sister Alona what is to be written. The contents of
the joint affidavit is understandable and simple. he acquiesced to the
July 6 affidavit. However, the following day, he changed his mind. He
cross out his signature and the signature of his brother Ronnie Gumpad
as witness. Instead, he insisted us to sign on the affidavit which I
believed prepared by his lawyer. he respects more his non-christian
lawyer than what we have discussed among us christian brothers.
- "Brother Rody said, that
he don't like fighting especially in a one-sided battle."
The very since we are not fighting, we are rebuking. It is not one-sided
because he used all tricks to present his side. For us it is already
over and we want peace but Brother Rody is implacable. "He buries
the hatchet, but leaves the handle sticking out." He
was threatening to sue us to court. He is determined to do it especially
when he received some negative reactions
of those who viewed the tape of the confrontation.
- "Brother Rody further
said, I failed to explain to you that I paid a little higher amount
than that in the Deed of Sale. The nine fellows exagerated too much
The fact that he knew that the documents he sent are simulated without
clear explanation, he is already concealing something. He refused to
give the actual figures and ours is
not exagerated. Another, to avoid paying higher capital gains tax,
it is useless that the vendee declare a very low deed of sale. Brother
Rody is the vendee. The tax is based on the amount of the Deed of
Sale or the Zoning Value based on the Bureau of Internal Revenue which
ever is higher. Usually, the zoning value is always higher than that
of the Deed of sale.
Brother Ken, I have more information, to give you light about all what
he had written but it is enough that you know him as you viewed on how
he carries himself during the confrontation.
I close and our warmest regards. Please pray for us. may God bless you
Yours in Him,
