Guam - After nearly two weeks of discussion in federal court about the problems with access to healthcare at the Department of Corrections just today independent monitor in the DepCor federal case, J. Bradley Klemm has been ordered to look into allegations being made by an inmate.

The directive follows a second letter written by Joseph Manibusan to District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco Gatewood. The inmate accuses DOC of ignoring his medical needs. He is a diabetic and on dialysis.  In between his first letter written in January until now he alleges things have not gotten better. Not only is his medical diet not being followed, his medical prescriptions haven't been filled for months. Klemm has been directed to look into Manibusans' allegations and report back to the court if the parties are unable to resolve the matter without court intervention.
