Fourth superceding indictment in Blue House case

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - In the midst of jury selection, a superceding indictment has been handed down in the Blue House Lounge prostitution case. This afternoon defense attorneys for Police Officers David Q. Manila and Anthony Quenga and Superior Court Judge Anita Sukola expressed concerns with this latest indictment, which is the fourth filed in the case. 

Assistant Attorney General Jonathan Quan explained that there were no new additional witnesses or new evidence that was presented to the grand jury.  He said the only change made was the date of birth for one of the alleged victims. Manila, Quenga and former Blue House Lounge owner Song Ja Cha face a slew of charges that stem from kidnapping, conspiracy, and promoting prostitution. 

Jury selection meanwhile continues while Manila and Quenga are scheduled to answer to the new indictment on August 7.
