Palacios: Suba can't return without degree

Guam - Former police chief Paul Suba may still possibly make a comeback in the Guam Police Department as a captain, the position he held prior to his appointment as the agency's top gun.  Senator Adolpho Palacios responds to public law that would allow Suba to return, specifically public policy that allows the chief to be reinstated to his classified position so long as he was not removed.

(Keep in mind Suba retired, he was not fired.)

Palacios on the other hand, maintains the law he authored that requires captains to have a legitimate bachelor's degree supersedes the provision in the law.  "If Adelup is bent on reappointing former chief Paul Suba to police captain, than I would urge police officers and other law enforcement personnel who are on the eligibility list for police captain that they have standing to sue to void such action," the senator said.

Palacios contends Adelup's attitude is not consistent with the merit system and proper procedures for filling government positions.
