2 June 18,11 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana New Contimudfrom page 10 after one meeting in which Father McGarvey denied the allegations. "That is definitely untrue," Bishop McHugh said. He said after he interviewed Father McGarvey "I ... told him he was to go for professional evaluation and I began our in- vestigation .... The investiga- tion continues, but it has been complicated and pro- longed because Father Hayes engaged an attorney and on March 12, 1993, we were in- formed that we were not to contact Father Hayes except through his lawyer." He also defended the U.S. bishops' national agencies, the National Conference of Catholic Bishops and U.S. Catholic Conference, against the lawsuit's allegations that they participated in illegal ac- tivity under the RICO statutes by encouraging dioceses to destroy evidence and obstruct justice in child molestation cases. "The NCCB-USCC has never advised the destruction of documents nor the reloca- tion of documents," he said. "The Diocese of Camden has not destroyed or relocated pertinent documents, nor do we intend to do so." In a separate interview in Washington, NCCB-USCC general counsel Mark E. Chopko told Catholic News Service that "there is no basis in law and no basis in fact" for the lawsuit's allegations that the bishops' conferences conspired to obstruct justice In all conference dealings with bishops and diocesan at- torneys, he said, "we have al- ways urged full compliance with the laws," and for the conference to do anything else "would be contrary to everything we believe in." "We have consistently ad- vised that documents not be sent to the Vatican Embassy or to any other location to try to avoid responsibility for any case," Chopko said. "It's not done, it should not be done." Chopko described the de- struction of documents claim as a "smoke and mirrors" play by the plaintiffs' attor- neys to explain why they had no substantive evidence to back up their underlying allegations of fraud and conspiracy. "It's legal to destroy docu- ments" unless they are under subpoena or are pertinent to a lawsuit, he said. I00l00lhor & has the car with the answers important to you.
