Guam - At a media conference at Adelup late this afternoon Chief of Police Fred Bordallo publicly released the details of the Blue House Lounge case that led to the conviction and life sentence of its owner, Song Ja Cha. Cha was convicted in federal court of bringing in young girls from Chuuk and forcing them to have sex with customers for cash.

One of those customers was Police Officer David Q. Manila, who admitted to paying $40 for a drink and then having sex with one of the Blue House Lounge workers. He testified that he also advised an employee that she could not leave until she had paid her debt to the owner. Bordallo says police attempted to get more information, but the girl's attorney refused to let police speak to her.

At the governor's direction, the police chief revealed that he was never informed about the possible involvement of other officers named "Tony" or "Mario" who were identified by Blue House workers during the trial last year.

Bordallo says he has not ordered an investigation into the alleged involvement of other officers but at the request of the Calvo Administration, he will now launch an independent investigation conducted by a senior officer of the department with no ties to the case.

The chief added that he wholeheartedly welcomes the investigation.
