I personally know Father Anthony Figueiredo as he was the head of the North American College's sabbatical program.

A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.”Mt 5:14),based on the overriding principle that it is imperative to place in the public domain,at the right time and prudently,information that has yet to come to light and impacts directly on allegations of criminal activity, the restrictions imposed on my now laicized former Archbishop,and w
