Ex-minister’s lawyer: Iglesia ni Cristo crisis not yet over !
Kasalukuyang nagsampa ng kasong illegal detention si Ka Jun Samson sa mga taong dumakip sa kanya.
Ayon kay Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles:
“Mr. Samson would like to make it clear, that contrary to the statements made recently by INC Executive Minister, Eduardo Manalo, the crisis brought about by corrupt practices in the said Church, is not over. Not by a long shot.”
Sa kanyang Facebook account, ito ang kanyang pahayag:
“Remember what I said about a bad person (me) defending a good guy? Well, here it is. Isaias Samson is — or was — a minister with the Iglesia ni Cristo. He had the temerity to question what was amounting to a tong-pats by some members of the powerful Sanggunian in the financial transactions of the Church. For his pains he was expelled, detained, his property taken from him, his family living in fear, threats constantly coming in. But Atty. Paglinawan and I would not have taken on this case solely for the curiousity value or the interesting legal issues that might come up. All we have asked, members and non-members of the INC, are unanimous in one thing: Mr. Samson is a good man. An upright person who had devoted his life to the church, as had his father before him, and his grandfather. And talking to him is like talking to someone of the stature two degrees below the Pope. His voice is stentorian, his stance is sure, his story consistent. To a man, members of the INC agree there are no skeletons here — unless they come up with (read: fabricate) something. “They”, being certain members of the Sanggunian, a council of ministers who advice and lead the church, below in ranking only to the Executive Minister himself.”
