Drug trial continues with more testimony in District Court

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Today marked Day 10 of the major drug trial of Mateo Sardoma Jr., Rudy Sablan and Maria Edrosa. The government is only on their thirteenth witness and today they called Sardoma's uncle, an accountant, to testify about his nephew being a messenger for him delivering and collecting documents. 

Co-defendant Eduardo Lake returned to the stand this afternoon for cross-examination and talked about buying drugs and bringing them in from the Philippines. Lake took the stand against a doctor's advice and with an ambulance on standby because of his terminal medical condition. He testified that he was paid $4,000 for bringing two brooms filled with crystal meth but said he never distributed the drugs.  

The defense has raised an objection about allowing the testimony of a Drug Enforcement Administration agent who will testify about evidence of a continuing criminal enterprise.  The defense contends allowing the testimony will be prejudicial to the defendants. 

The court has reserved making a decision at this time to first research the matters.
