Friday's hearing on Rector rescheduled

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Legislative Ethics Committee rescheduled tomorrow's hearing on the complaint filed by Eloy Hara because of a lack of quorum. The hearing will instead be held next Thursday. 

Last night, the committee's legal counsel released the preliminary findings of Hara's complaint. Attorney Anthony Camacho reviewed five separate issues. The first on whether Rector violated the Legislature's ethics code by failing to disclose his prior criminal conviction to the Guam Election Commission when he applied to run for Senator in 2008. Camacho stated that if true, then Senator Rector might be in violation of the ethics code because members of the Legislature are required to uphold the Organic Act of Guam and obey Guam laws.

In preparation for the upcoming hearing, Attorney Camacho informed members that he would be issuing a subpoena to the Guam Police Department.

"That is just asking or commanding the Guam Police Department to release any and all records concerning any arrest or conviction of the honorable Rector from any jurisdiction including, but not limited to, Guam and the U.S. State of California, which GPD may have in their custody, possession or control and I will be requesting that they release these documents by 5pm today," he said.
