Troubled DepCor officer says situation worsens

Guam - Department of Corrections Officer Abraham Santiago says he will have the final documents fighting his recent transfer prepared by his attorney on Monday.  Santiago says the situation has gotten worse, saying he's no longer allowed to enter DepCor's facility in Mangilao, see the agency's nurse, or collect overtime. 

Santiago on Monday was transferred to conduct perimeter duty at the far end of the facility after he argued with DepCor Director J.B. Palacios about the lack of information given about a death threat targeting his safety.  "Because of the special order that came out of the Director's Office that I am not allowed to enter the facility or the compound, whenever I leave I'm to be escorted, make sure that I am to exit the compound," he said.  

"Am I the criminal in this case?"

In the meantime, Palacios stands firm on his decision to transfer Santiago, saying he is only considering the staffer's safety by keeping away from the population.
