Inquiry complete; Camacho stands by Suba

Posted: Updated:

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Governor Felix Camacho received a briefing on the findings of an internal affairs investigation into Police Chief Paul Suba's highspeed pursuit of a hit-and-run suspect.  The island's chief executive sat down with Suba and acting deputy chief and Guam Homeland Security Adviser Frank Ishizaki this afternoon to get the full report. 

Ishizaki would not release the findings, saying it would be up to the governor to decide what information, if any, would be provided to the public on the outcome of the investigation.  As we reported the IA investigation will reveal whether Suba violated any department rules and regulations when he conducted the high speed chase in an unmarked official vehicle and rammed into the suspect's car three times eventually running them off the road.

Even with the findings, the governor is standing by the top brass.  Camacho told KUAM News, "He is a good man, he has been a good servant, he has been a police officer all his life, he served ably and I have stood by him then in the worst of times, in the best of times and I will stand by him in the worst of times. He's not going anywhere; he's going to continue to serve until the end of this term."

Governor Camacho adds that he will be releasing the details on his briefing tomorrow, and that he will be sending Ishizaki back to homeland security to work full-time now that the investigation is complete.
