Guam - Another alleged victim took the stand in the Blue House trial this afternoon, testifying about her alleged encounters with a police officer who she claims frequented the former Upper Tumon establishment.

Erneel Nemek sat at the witness table testifying about how she didn't want to have sex with Police Officer David Q. Manila, who she alleges came to the Blue House Lounge on three occasions.  During direct examination, she went into great detail about the three encounters she had with Manila, who she claims was in uniform each time he visited. The first time she claims she didn't want to have sex with him but he forced her and when he was done she claims he put back on his uniform and walked out.  The second time Manila arrived, she testified that she refused to go with him resulting in

Her being beaten with a hanger by owner Song Ja Cha. Mama San and Freda [Eseun], they told me to go back inside and help him because he was going to arrest me," she said. "I finally went inside and when I was in the room he asked me to have sex with him; if I refuse not to have sex he is going to arrest me." Prosecutor Jonathan Quan asked what she did then, to which she replied, "Nothing but scared." Quan asked if she had sex with Manila. "Yes, he was rough," she responded.

Nemek claims that Manila held her hands and was forceful and she cried because it was painful. On one occasion she claims he ripped off her clothes, causing them to tear.

She was asked, "When he was restraining you when he was pulling down his pants, when he was penetrating you, did you say anything?" She replied, "Yes, when I asked him not to restrain me, he said, if I don't do it, he's going to arrest me."

But during cross-examination, Manila's attorney asked how many times she had had sex with other men who came to the Blue House. Erniel testified that she had sex three times a night but later testified that she only had sex on eight other occasions during her eight months of working at the blue house.  Erniel said she didn't want to have sex with manila because he was a police officer or with any customers.

The defense then showed an exhibit featuring photos of various police officers.  Erniel had been shown the lineup back in October when interviewed by authorities about the alleged police involvement in prostitution at the Blue House. In one exhibit, Erniel identified defendant Anthony Quenga as an officer she saw frequent the Blue House, but despite being given the photos of Manila and other officers, Erniel wasn't able to identify him back in October.

Attorney Terry Timblin, Manila's representative, asked, "Do you see the chubby officer anywhere in this picture?", with Nemek confirming that she did. Timblin then said, "Back when you were talking to Officer Volta, you were unable to find that picture, weren't you?" She indicated that she did. "It was only after you saw this gentleman in the courtroom," said Timblin.

Nemek acknowledged that and admitted that after the Blue House had been raided and she was interviewed by police, she never mentioned anything about officers having sex at the Blue House.

The trial will resume on Tuesday afternoon, on account of the Labor Day holiday.
