This new Gibney Chronicles version updates earlier reporting with an introductory chapter on what author Irvin Muchnick calls the culminating mystery of a renewed United States government investigation of Gibney: his role, while living in Colorado in the late 1990s, as “Chairman of the International Peru Eye Clinic Foundation” — a local Catholic church group’s medical mission. The ebook explains how this project coincided with the establishment of a new presence in the United States, starting in Colorado, of a Catholic sect based in Peru, Sodalitium Christianae Vitae. In recent years this group has been exposed for rampant violence and sexual abuse under its Peruvian founder, Luis Fernando Figari, who today lives in seclusion in Rome.
On Sunday, a pre-recorded interview with Muchnick, in which he discusses the American investigation of Gibney and progress in the campaign to get him extradited back to Ireland, will be an episode of the award-winning Irish podcast What’s the Story? Next week Muchnick will be in Dublin to meet with Irish government leaders, Gibney victims, and journalists.
