Guam - The federal government meanwhile opposes any delay in the trial of Wai Kam Ho, Jennie Pau and William Perez. Ho has asked for a delay in the case as he claims his fugitive wife, Betsy Tang, has brain cancer and is on her death bed.

Ho, Jennie Pau and William Perez are set to go to trial next month for allegedly running in an illegal gambling operation at the former MGM Spa.

Ho's attorney, David Lujan, contends the one- or two-month delay is justified. He argues the government has not demonstrated any prejudice that will result from the delay.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Karon Johnson vehemently opposed any delay and also noted that she is set to retire at the end of November.
