KUAM lawyers seek review of seized document

by Sabrina Salas Matanane

Guam - Attorneys for KUAM have asked for in camera review of the single document police seized during a raid of the KUAM Studios in Harmon two weeks ago. In the latest filing with the Superior Court, attorneys for the Calvo & Clark law firm have asked to simply examine the document and its markings that the Guam Police Department will neither release nor provide a copy of.  

The document was included in a news story that KUAM News broke revealing that Police Officer Trainee John Edwards did not pass his polygraph and that his exam was sent off-island for external review.  GPD officials confirmed during an oversight hearing this week that Edwards did not pass his polygraph as the test results were inconclusive.

Superior Court Judge Vern Perez ordered GPD to stop forensic analysis of the document and give it to the court for safekeeping until the judge can determine who the rightful owner of the document is.

A hearing has been scheduled for tomorrow morning at 10:30.
