We published the article below on Oct 3, 2014.
We now have the actual transcript of the hearing where it’s made clear that this case has been continued.
The basis of the charges is also defined in the document.
Sources believe that this investigation has been hobbled by political influence from the U.S…Tom Randall has friends in high places.
If the trial is not allowed to continue there is little left that can be done on this side of heaven.
That does not impede the Lord from doing a work Himself, however.
The October article begins below.
We have been covering the ongoing Philippine child abuse scandal and the trial of those accused in it.
The last report we made was when Pastor Joe Coffey of Christ Community Church sent out this tweet;
That Sunday morning, Tom Randall, the head of the mission organization announced the same thing to great applause.
You can watch him do so here.
When a parishioner tweeted Coffey inquiring as to why he couldn’t find news of this blessed turn of events, Coffey blamed it on the media.
This was a surprise to those who were actually at the trial, because they had heard the judge continue the case.
Somebody was either greatly confused…or someone was telling a whopper of a lie.
Getting documentation out of the Philippine court system is a chore…but we can now report that someone was lying.
We now have the actual order of the judge from the proceeding.
The charges have not been dropped, the trial has been continued.
The proclamations of Coffey and Randall were not true, nor have they been retracted.
Unless Randall’s Philippine attorneys are intentionally deceiving him, theres a large problem here.
It’s way past time for the supporters of Randall’s mission organization and the people of Coffey’s church to begin asking some hard questions.
It’s also way past time for American authorities to do the same.
