Panama
May 23, 1979

In the city of Panama, capital of the republic and head city for the Notary Public circuit of the same name, on the twenty-third (23) day of the month of May in nineteen hundred and seventy-nine (1979), before me, Pablo Leopoldo Arosemena, Fifth Notary Public Office of the Circuit of Panama with personal identification document number 6-17-954, there appeared the following persons.

[Page 2]

Mr. Robert Hart Fabian is male, of legal age, married, an attorney, US citizen, and bearer of passport number F 254779. He lives at 220 Bush Street, San Francisco, California 94104 USA and is acting in the name of and representing the legal entity known as the People’s Temple of the Disciples of Christ, known in Spanish as the Templo del Pueblo de los Discipulos de Cristo, a non-profit legal entity in the state of California, United States of America. He has been named and authorized liquidator of this entity by means of the resolution issued by the Superior Court of the State of California for the city and county of San Francisco.

As the undersigned notary public did not know him, he was accompanied by Eduardo Morgan Jr., male, of legal age, an attorney, Panamanian, and born in 1961. He is a resident of the city with personal identification documents 4-62-11. The above was also accompanied by Adelina Mercedes Chavarria de Estribi, female, of legal age, Panamanian, and a secretary who was married in 1970. She is a resident of the city, with personal identification document number 8-129-226.

I know these persons and they are of good character and are capable of acting as witnesses to a legal document. They have assured me that they know the person issuing the power of attorney and that his name is as he has stated. He has asked me to show, by this public document, that special power is conferred on the law firm of Morgan and Morgan, whose offices are located on the 15th floor of the Republic Building on the Via Espana and Calle Colombia in Panama City, Panama, and which constitutes their legal address for receiving all notifications. They have sufficient amplitude as required by law to file complaints, handle legal matters, engage in voluntary jurisdiction, handle transactions, and carry out administrative matters of any other nature before any corporation, official, and employee of a judicial body, the office of the public prosecutor, or any other administrative agency. This includes court proceedings, legal actions, transactions, complaints, acts, matters, business, attachments, and appeals in which the person issuing the

[Page 3]

power of attorney might intervene or might have to intervene either directly or indirectly as plaintiff, defendant, third party, party being attached, appellant, complainant, simple interest party, or party of any other nature. The law firm shall be empowered to receive, commit, transact, cease, or renounce terms, procedures, and appeals, or to deputize the exercising of power which is conferred either in total or partially. It may resume exercise of such power and do anything and everything which the person granting the power of attorney could do in such a way that his statements would, under no circumstances whatsoever, fail to be represented or his rights to those interests be left unprotected.

The firm of Morgan and Morgan may exercise this power both within the territory of the Republic of Panama and abroad before the authorities of any other nation without any limitation whatsoever.

The Notary Public advises that a copy of this document is to be registered and read. This was done by the appearing parties in the presence of duly qualified witnesses Gladys Herrara de Castillo, female, with personal identification document number 3-67-197 and Clara Sonia de Del Rosario, female, with personal identification document number 7-32-750. Both are of legal age, Panamanian citizens, and residents of this city. As Notary Public I certify that I have met them and that all parties signed to show their approval.
