Guam - An IRS agent spent the day on the stand in the trial of William Perez and Jennie Pau. The two are accused of engaging in illegal gambling and money laundering at the former MGM Spa. The witness testified that there wasn't enough information to track how much money was actually coming in and going out from the operations.
He also testified about structuring and said that Pau admitted that she was aware of the duty to file mandated currency transaction reports for any deposits or withdrawals of $10,000 or more. Pau made batches of deposits all under $10,000 repeatedly on numerous occasions.
The two are being tried separately from co-defendant Wai Kam Ho, who is reportedly tending to his fugitive wife who is very ill. The trial is expected to wrap up on Friday.
