Guam - An arrest warrant has been issued for Wai Kam Ho, as he has not returned to the island. District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood has ordered that the defense show proof of Ho's airfare ticket to Guam, as well as his travel itinerary and a medical certificate showing that Ho's spouse underwent surgery on Monday.
Ho was supposed to have returned to Guam as he is scheduled to go to trial on April 8. The defendant had been allowed to leave the island claiming his fugitive wife, Betsy Tang Ho, was on her deathbed in China.
Ho is accused of running an illegal gambling business for a number of years at the former MGM Spa building in Tamuning.
