Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo issued a directive to the Guam Police Department today ordering the immediate investigation into allegations that members of the Civil Service Commission have been threatened. GPD has been ordered to investigate the claims that were mentioned during a public hearing held earlier this week when CSC executive director Tony Lamorena said some commission members have been threatened and followed to their cars after making decisions in adverse action cases against GovGuam employees.
The same directive also orders GPD to work with the Attorney General's Office to see what information from internal affairs investigation can be released. GPD doesn't provide any specific details about IA cases, only releasing the classification of the complaint and whether or not the case was substantiated against the officer.
Police Chief Fred Bordallo was ordered to consult with the attorney general on all recent IA cases, including the Blue House Lounge case and the Emma Cepeda murder to determine what information can be released to the public within the confines of the law.
