Guam - They were initially due back in April, but this Friday marks the final deadline for the public officials who requested an extension to file their full financial disclosure statements and conflict of interest reports to the Guam Election Commission. Executive director Maria Pangelinan says public officials who do not file their FDS may end up with their names at the Attorney General's Office.

"The public official or the candidate becomes guilty of a misdemeanor so we urge all our candidates and public officials who have not yet turned in their personal financial disclosure statements to turn them in on Friday. Friday you turn them in, the financial disclosure statements will start to be available for the public to inspect," she said.

Pangelinan says the FDS allows public officials to be transparent with the community. As of yesterday, out of 116 public officials, 32 have yet to file their FDS.
