Guam - The U.S. Attorney's Office is opposed to allowing Wai Kam Ho to travel to China later this month. Ho requested permission to leave Guam to visit family in China and the request was approved by the U.S. Probation Office and District Court Magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan.
The only problem is, the feds were unaware of Ho's request and vehemently oppose the travel because it is impossible to extradite from china because the U.S. doesn't have an extradition treaty with the country. Assistant U.S. Attorney Karon Johnson requested that the court withdraw its order and set a hearing for the matter.
Ho, however, is set to leave Guam on Monday. He pleaded not guilty to multiple counts of illegal gambling and wire fraud and awaits trial set for April.
