Bernadette Meno files criminal complaint

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Former Port Authority of Guam marketing administrator Bernadette Sterne Meno has filed a criminal complaint with the Guam Police Department. Police spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia confirms Meno appeared at the Hagatna Precinct Command Monday morning at around 9:30 wishing to file a criminal complaint of official misconduct against a Port Authority safety officer. According to the Police Blotter Meno filed an official report of records tampering.

Balajadia says the complaint has been forwarded to the Criminal Investigations Section for their information and follow-up. 

Meno allegedly slipped and fell in a Port bathroom in September 2011. She had a doctor's certification to receive back surgery in Hawaii. However when the $70,000 travel request and authorization was reviewed at Adelup an investigation was launched and she along with six of her co-workers were terminated for their role in an alleged scheme to defraud the government and cover it up. Meno most recently during a confirmation hearing for Ed Ilao to serve another term on the Port board said that she along with her former co-workers were illegally and wrongfully terminated "in one of the biggest and most explosive political witch hunts in the history of our government".

She has appealed her termination to the Civil Service Commission.
