|"i would have started out with,
mom has an inheritance with the philippine govt. i would like your share of this inheritance to cover the costs of the funeral etc. according to moms lawyer, this requires you to fill out the following forms and have the forms notorized by the phii[[ne consulate/ embassy. additionally and while you are there, you will need to have your birth certificate validated/notorized.
please make 4 copies of the documents please
thank you again these documents would allow for the much needed funds to be released to me.
adrian do you see how precise this is? there is no time wastage"
|In fact, this is word for word what Adrian told Andrew in an email dated Mar 19, 2017 (seen here). Meanwhile, Andrew sent multiple obstructionist and disruptive emails asking "would you break your vegan code for mom?", and trying to convince Adrian to "declare him dead". In retrospect, it seems clear that Andrew had been trying to get out of this process, in order to avoid providing the information requested or signing the legal documents. Why Andrew is so frightened of revealing his address or financial information is an interesting question. I'll let the reader's imagination run wild (though they can simply do a Google search on "Andrew Camoens" and draw their conclusions from that).
The criticism of the way Adrian was handling his mother's affairs is especially hypocritical, since Andrew abandoned his mother decades ago. Here's how Andrew spent his time instead.
|if you were working with the phil lawyer, she should already know about this BIR and would have brought upeither she is inept or you are unable to comprehend my emails to you||This is partially true. Anyone who has ever had their inbox cluttered by Andrew's emails will agree that his syntax and thought process are extremely hard to follow.
As far as Andrew's allegation about the lawyer's ineptitude, not long after this email was sent, she became a prominent judge in Manila. So Andrew may be alone in regarding her as "inept".
|next you mentioned that you would appreciate me taking over for you and handing the funeral arrangement. WITH NOTHING TO GO FROM YOU, no input what so ever i suggested going to fatima and then to st andrews in goa. did you even tell me that she ONLY wanted to be buried in goa at a specific church. how was i supposed to know.||This is false. In an email dated Mar 20, 2017, Adrian stated "FYI, mom wanted her remains to be taken back to Goa." Adrian never mentioned he wanted Andrew to "take over", only that Andrew could join him in Goa or help find a suitable cemetary there.
Beyond that...how did Andrew not know his own mother was Indian and from Goa? How did he not know that she was a devout Catholic and would want a burial consistent with her religion? Why would he think that sprinkling her ashes on a beach in Portugal was at all appropriate, except that he had his own reasons to go to Portugal? If Andrew never heard his mother constantly state her intentions to move back to India during the last decades of her life, it was because he cut her out life after he secured his US residency.
|instead you left me living homeless in both the US and the UK for almost 2 months. you could have written me and told me that you decided to handle all of this on your own. this is not how i would have treated you||This accusation is so risible it's actually laughable. How was Adrian responsible for Andrew's homelessness? How could Adrian leave Andrew homeless in the UK when Adrian has never in his life told anyone to go there? How does someone who is able to wire $10,000 (as Andrew offers in a previous email) seriously consider himself "homeless"?
And finally, as stated several times on this blog (and confirmed by Andrew's own emails), how can Andrew accuse his brother of "leaving him homeless" when Adrian lent him $20,000 to buy a house - providing Andrew with not just a home but a source of income (renting out the various rooms/"units")?
Adrian did not in fact ask Andrew to "take over" for him, as Andrew keeps alleging. In an email dated Mar 27, 2017, Adrian told Andrew he could help by finding a suitable place for the ashes. Andrew's version of "research" was to take a screenshot of Google Maps - without including any information on the type of cemetary, whether there was a dedicated niche for ashes, or how much the internment would cost.
As far as how Andrew "would have treated" Adrian...Andrew belittled, disrespected, and abandoned his younger brother any time he didn't require Adrian's assistance. So this is utter BS.
|it hurts me that you have told me that you would like me to take care of this and then now robbed me of this opportunity to say my peace to mom. i wonder why i have been waiting all this time under so much duress and hardships when this matter was taken care of by you with no notification from you that you had decided to do so.||This is the most insidious allegation in the entire email. Andrew had 30 years to make amends with his mother; at any time, he could have called her up, apologized to her, offered to aid her through her old age, assisted her in immigrating to the US, etc. Instead, he spent decades watching movies on his big TV in his big house in Boston while his mother lived in misery and uncertainty. And during the last years of his mother's life, Andrew played on a beach in Bali while she was dying of cancer.
This isn't the first time Andrew has used his parents to attack his brother's character - in 2008, he accused Adrian of lying about the facts of their father's death, and "therefore preventing [him] from getting closure". In fact, in 2002 Adrian did immediately call his brother and relay all the details of their father's death as he received them; a few years later, Adrian procured the death certificate at Andrew's request as well. How Andrew can characterize these actions as "lying" is anyone's guess; as is how Adrian would in any way be responsible for preventing his brother from attaining "peace" and "closure" when Andrew spent decades claiming he "had no parents" to friends and acquaintances. Ad hominem attacks like this are why Adrian made the decision to permanently remove his brother from his life.
|just like you i have been contacting the people in fatima and the people in st andrews church goa. i have just contacted them and told them that you have decided to proceed your own different way.||If Andrew had in fact secured a place for his mother's ashes, why didn't he relay the information to his brother, or put Adrian in touch with the church? Why keep all that information to himself?
Incidentally, the process of finding a cemetary plot in India is extremely difficult, and most spots in Catholic cemetaries are reserved for members of the church parish. It's unlikely that Andrew would have been able to accomplish this with a few emails or a simple Google search. It took Adrian weeks of dedicated research, phone calls, and 2 trips to India to secure the location where his mother was finally interred.
Of the churches in Goa named "St. Andrew's", only the one in Vasco de Gama has a cemetary, and it is not open to non-parishioners. Unless Andrew cares to share these correspondances he speaks of, this allegation is almost certainly a lie.
|i am having the birth certificate sent to me in the UK. i am as i have been living homeless in the streets of the the UK while i wait for the birth certificate. as soon as i get the birth certificate. i will take it to the phil embassy in london and have it notarised for you. i have no idea how long this will take but rest assured when it gets done i will let you know.||It should be noted that Adrian made no demands of his brother: He just relayed the information as he received it from the lawyer and Philippines Consulate, and asked Andrew if he had time to do what was asked. Andrew could easily have just said "no".
The claims of being "homeless" in the UK are ridiculous, and have been addressed above. Also: How would a homeless person living on the street receive a birth certificate via mail?
If Andrew did indeed get his birth certificate mailed to himself and notarized at the Philippines Consulate in London, he never passed along any of that information to his brother. There is no evidence corroborating any of these claims.
|pease let your lawyer know that due do her ineptitude that this matter is now not going to get done as fast as she would like it to be done. please tell her that she should have told me while i was already waiting for almost a week in the phil embassy that she also needed this done at the same time. it is her fault really or your fault for not finding out and being thorough with me.||Andrew's allegations about the lawyer's "ineptitude" stem from her not knowing the Bureau of Internal Revenue (Filipino version of the IRS) was going to ask for more documentation/verification. Andrew makes no mention of how his brother or the lawyer were supposed to know that the BIR were going to ask for more information before they received the information on hand, but Andrew makes sure to place others at fault for not "being thorough".|
for your part of all the pain i have had to endure , this is what i require from you,
i want a scanned copy of the document i sent to her. the ones which i had done in dc and sent to the lawyer. i asked you for this 45 days ago.
|The signed versions of the documents referred to here (Extra Judicial Settlement and Special Power of Attorney) were sent directly from Andrew to the lawyer in the Philippines. Adrian was never even in the same room as them, so it's unclear why he is being held responsible for making sure Andrew gets scanned copies when Andrew didn't even hold himself responsible for that.
The unsigned versions were emailed to Andrew on the 20th of March, 2017, as PDF attachments. He still has them in his gmail account.
It's not clear why Andrew needs scans of these signed documents so badly. Andrew could easily have scanned them himself before mailing them to the Philippines, and in fact Adrian requested he do so. Andrew's response was "no promises". But Adrian also made "no promises" to his brother.
If Andrew needed these scans so badly, why didn't he do it himself before mailing them off? Or else, why didn't he simply contact the lawyer himself (since Adrian gave him the lawyer's info three separate times). Why leave the task to a younger sibling who Andrew spent decades characterizing as an "idiot", "disorganized", "illogical", and so forth (and who was also working a full-time job while coordinating with lawyers, hospitals, banks, embassies, government agencies, and churches to settle their mother's affairs). Asking Adrian to keep track of Andrew's documents was just selfish and inconsiderate on Andrew's part.
Finally, Andrew wanted Adrian to relay messages to the lawyer (now judge) about her "ineptitude" before asking her for a favour on Andrew's behalf. This isn't just illogical, it's in extremely poor character. And Andrew was unlikely to get his documents after behaving like that.
This is in response to several allegations made by Andrew Camoens from May 15th-May 17th, 2017 via email. The full emails are included at the bottom of this post.
