Crawford seeks to intervene in Ancestral suit

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - A motion to intervene has been filed in lawsuit filed against the Ancestral Lands Commission. Representing Vincente Crawford, Attorney Mike Phillips, is seeking intervention on behalf of his client. Maria Gange, Jesus Charfauros, Ana Chargualaf, and Jesus Aguigui filed a lawsuit against the Ancestral Lands Commission to prevent the transfer of former FAA and Marbo land to original landowners of Tiyan property, pursuant to Public Law 30-158.

They alleged the law was unfair and only benefited a few original landowners instead of all. According to court documents, Crawford is the owner of 10% of the Tiyan properties that were retained by the Guam International Airport and would directly benefit from the Commission's implementation of the law.

Phillips has requested that his client be allowed to intervene in the matter to protect his interests.
