Judge visits downtown jail

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - District Court of Guam Magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan Jr. paid the Hagatna Detention Facility a visit this morning to take a look at the living conditions of federal detainees. His visit to the facility is a part of an ongoing case in which federal detainee Julian Robles has asked to be released, alleging his Constitutional rights are being violated, also alleging that there are inadequate conditions at the Hagatna Detention Facility.

During Judge Manibusan's visit to the Echo Block, security was heightened and detainees were contained to their cells as Judge Manibusan took a look for himself at the conditions. When asked to comment on his tour of the facility, Judge Manibusan respectfully declined, stating since this is an ongoing case it would not be ethical for him to make a comment at this time.
