PASTOR Apollo Quibuloy’s camp has claimed there is a grand conspiracy to destroy the name and image of the founder of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.
Lawyer Israelito Torreon, legal counsel of Quiboloy, made the allegation as he questioned the motive and timing of the rape, qualified trafficking in person and child abuse cases filed against Quiboloy by one Blenda Portugal.
Portugal has also filed cases of sexual abuse and forced labor against Jackielyn Roy, Cresente Canada, Pauline Canada, Ingrid Canada and Sylvia Cemanes in December 2019 at the Office of the City Prosecutor in Davao City.
“It appeared that she is well supported and well financed. We know who they are and we are prepared for them. We will show them that Quiboloy is innocent,” Torreon said.
Torreon said the criminal cases were Portugal’s vengeance for the libel suit lodged by the evangelist against her in Oct. 22, 2018 in which the City Prosecutor of Panabo City, Davao del Norte issued a warrant for her arrest.
The City Prosecutor found evidence that Portugal was responsible for spreading malicious comments against Quiboloy in the social media forum Facebook using different aliases.
Torreon claimed Portugal’s allegations were part of a “grand conspiracy” to pin down his client.
“We will show you that this is not true. Because Quiboloy is true to his mission to propagate love, the love for Jesus and we are here to cause the dismissal of the criminal cases filed to him,” he said.
The lawyer said the theory of grand conspiracy was bolstered after Portugal still managed to get some confidential documents from the Kingdom despite leaving KJC last May, 2016.
Torreon is referring to an internal office memorandum that Portugal obtained last November 21, 2018 and January 18, 2019.
