By John BurtonCOLTS NECK – Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office investigators have arrested the Roman Catholic priest with a history of child molestation who became a lightening rod for controversy at St. Mary’s Parish last month.Detectives took the Rev. Michael Fugee, 52, of St. Antonius Parish in Newark, into custody on Monday, May 21, and charged him with seven counts of contempt of a judicial order, categorized as fourth degree crimes, according to the prosecutor’s office.Fugee, who was assigned to the Newark archdiocese, was charged and indicted more than a decade ago with inappropriately touching a boy when he was with a Bergen County parish. The charge resulted in a conviction, which subsequently was overturned on a procedural matter. Instead of retrying the case, the prosecutor and Fugee reached an agreement that the priest would undergo counseling and be permitted limited ministry work, but would be prohibited from unsupervised contact with minors.Recently, it was discovered that Fugee participated in a St. Mary’s Parish youth program and accompanied group members to youth retreats that involved him hearing confessions from minors. That caused a public outcry, and ultimately led to the ouster of the parish pastor, the Rev. Thomas J. Triggs and the resignation of two parish youth ministers earlier this month.Fugee offered his resignation from the Newark Chancery, which was accepted by Archbishop John J. Meyers. With his resignation, Fugee is prohibited from conducting any clergy duties, but technically remains a priest until the resignation is officially accepted by the Vatican, according to an archdiocese spokesman.Two St. Mary’s retreats, held at Kateri Environmental Center, 160 Conover Road in the Wickatunk section of Marlboro, were two of seven instances of Fugee allegedly participating in parish youth activities, in possible violation of the court order and agreement, authorities said.The other events were held in Mount Arlington, Rochelle Park and Paramus, according to the prosecutor’s office.The investigation is continuing, authorities said.A Superior Court judge set Fugee’s bail on Monday at $25,000, with the option of posting 10 percent, but with the condition of surrendering his passport, law enforcement authorities said. Fugee was remanded to the Bergen County jail in lieu of bail and was expected to appear in court Tuesday.Authorities request that anyone with information about the case contact the prosecutor’s office at 201-226-5620.Foillowing Fugee’s arrest, the Archdiocese of Newark issued a statement that said in part: “We take these allegations seriously and will cooperate fully with law enforcement in its investigation.”The Diocese of Trenton has announced Triggs would be on sabbatical until next Jan. 1.Diocese of Trenton Bishop David M. O’Connell has named the Rev. Jeffrey E. Lee as the parish’s new pastor, effective immediately. Lee is also pastor of Our Lady of the Angels Parish, Trenton, and will continue there as well until June 29.

CARACAS, Venezuela – ConocoPhillips said Wednesday that it won a $2 billion arbitration award against Venezuela’s state oil company, compounding the financial woes of the socialist-run nation as it struggles to feed its population.The award represents the equivalent of more than 20 per cent of the cash-strapped government’s foreign currency reserves.The Houston-based company said in a statement that the ruling against PDVSA by an International Chamber of Commerce panel was final and binding.“ConocoPhillips will pursue enforcement and seek financial recovery of its award to the full extent of the law,” the company said in a statement.But collecting the judgment won’t be easy, as President Nicolas Maduro is holding on to the few dollars trickling into the country from plummeting oil production and amid sanctions by the Trump administration barring U.S investors from lending money to the government.There was no immediate comment from Venezuela’s government.The ruling arose from the expropriation of ConocoPhillips’ investments in two heavy crude oil projects in 2007 at a time then President Hugo Chavez increased the state’s take of record oil rents, forcing foreign oil companies to accept less generous terms. Many instead left the country and sued to hold up their original contracts.ConocoPhillips is pursuing separate legal action against Venezuela’s government under the auspices of the World Bank’s investment dispute mechanism. The World Bank tribunal has already ruled that Venezuela broke international law when it nationalized Conoco’s stakes in the two fields. Proceedings are underway to determine the amount of compensation.Venezuela still faces 22 arbitration cases at the World Bank, more than any other country in the world, with potential losses stretching into the billions.
Islamabad: The Islamabad High Court on Tuesday formed an independent five-member commission to probe the alleged abduction, forced conversion and marriage of two teenage Hindu girls in Sindh province that led to massive protests by the minority community in the country. A high court bench led by Chief Justice of IHC Athar Minallah heard the petition filed by the two sisters — Reena, Raveena — and their alleged spouses, Safdar Ali and Barkat Ali, to seek protection. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USIn their plea, the girls claimed that they belong to a Hindu family of Ghotki, Sindh but converted willfully as they were impressed by Islamic teaching. The counsel for the girls’ parents, however, asserted that the case pertained to forced conversion. Their father on Monday also filed a petition in the IHC for a medical board to determine the exact ages of the two sisters as well as to test the girls for Stockholm Syndrome, a state of mind when a victim develops trust or affection for kidnappers. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsJustice Minallah said the matter requires transparent inquiry and it is the government’s job to conduct probes not the judiciary’s. The chief justice said the court had to ensure that there was no forced conversion. The bench formed a five-member commission to probe the matter. The commission includes Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari, Human Rights Commission of Pakistan Chairperson Mehdi Hasan, National Commission on the Status of Women Chairperson Khawar Mumtaz, veteran human rights activist I A Rehman and renowned Islamic scholar Mufti Taqi Usmani. The federal government has been tasked to organise meeting of the commission. The incident came to light when a video surfaced online showing the teenagers’ father and brother claiming the girls were abducted and forcefully converted. It was followed by another video snippet in which the two girls claimed that they had converted to Islam. Amid the uproar, Prime Minister Imran Khan directed Sindh and Punjab to investigate the matter and recover the girls if the forceful conversion allegation was correct. Chief Justice Minallah also ordered that a medical board be constituted to determine the age of the girls. The court ordered the medical board to submit its report at the next hearing on April 11. Earlier, a medical report by Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences stated that the girls were not minors at the time of their marriages. The report was dismissed by the family of the girls as well as opposition lawmaker from Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, Darshan Punshi, who belongs to the Hindu community. Both the family and the lawmaker demanded an independent medical board to determine the age.
