I’m reading through the filings for the AG’s cease and desist order against MAP International, Catholic Medical Mission Board, and Food for the Poor. The hearing on the order is underway this week. It will continue for the next two weeks, according to the schedule.
Although the filings are public information, they are not available on the Internet. Instead, they must be obtained directly from the state. It took several phone calls, and getting forwarded to another office, but I did reach the person responsible for responding to media requests. When I finally reached the right person, she was extremely helpful and very prompt.
So, I now have a huge amount of reading to do.
As time is available over the next few days and weeks I will comment on different things visible in the filings.
A few preliminary thoughts.
This is a major battle. The charities are responding accordingly.
