Pokrov.org Co-Founder Participates in SNAP Media Event
Members of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) held a media event on September 16, 2009, in San Francisco. Pokrov.org co-founder Melanie Jula Sakoda was one of the participants, as was Barbara Dorris, SNAP’s National Outreach Director. Dorris has been traveling around the United States doing events in various cities.
The San Francisco event concerned Father Jose Superiaso. Superiaso pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl at Saint Andrew Catholic Church in Daly City. He is now seeking a pardon for his crimes. SNAP fears that he may be released early, returned to the Philippines, and allowed to return to ministry there.
