Guam - Former Port Authority of Guam Controller Jose Guevara won his case against his former employer. The Civil Service Commission on Thursday night voted in favor of Guevara who appealed his termination and argued that management had no grounds to fire him.  Guevara was among seven Port workers who were terminated for their alleged involvement in a scheme to defraud the government and cover it up.  

The decision however was not unanimous. Four commissioners voted in favor of Guevara, commissioner Edith Pangelinan voted in favor of management and commissioner Priscilla Tuncap abstained from the vote because she believed Guevara was considered management and wanted to hear the merits of the case.
