Guam - The Civil Service Commission will hear a public employee protection complaint this evening.  Lieutenant James Santos filed the complaint last year against the Guam Police Department after seeking a federal investigation into alleged corruption in the department. Former chief Captain Paul Suba made a complaint with GPD's Internal Affairs against Santos and Santos was advised that he faced possible adverse action for submitting the letter to Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo. 

The complaint was filed with the Commission under the Whistleblower's Protection Act and Santos is asking that GPD management be held responsible for violating his rights as a whistleblower which comes with a $1,000 fine. A merit hearing is being held this hour at the civil service commission.
