GUAM - The US Marshals Service visited the Hagatna detention facility this afternoon. As we reported, District Court magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan ordered the marshals to investigate claims from federal detainees who are alleging they are being subject to unsanitary living conditions and that the department is violating their constitutional rights. Today US Marshals met with DepCor personnel and toured the Hagatna facility and officials are expected to inspect the Mangilao facility next week. The marshals were ordered to provide a report to the court and if the concerns are not resolved, the judge will hold a hearing. As we reported Julian Robles, through his attorney Howard Trapp, has asked to be released from jail due to the living conditions. DepCor has denied that any rights are being violated or any of the conditions are unsanitary.
