No results announced yet from ethics inquiry into Espaldon

Posted: Updated:

Closed door talks are ongoing into that investigative hearing involving Senator Jim Espaldon. But, CNMI Representative Edwin Propst, who filed the ethics complaint against Espaldon, says he doesn't see the harm in releasing details of the Ethics meetings.

He told KUAM News, "It's basically a warning shot to anyone who comes to our islands that comes in here and wants to make deals and everything and does it without a business license, without a license to practice law, without a lobbyist license and you are a public official you are an elected official from another island we treat you as such we don't get to take off your hat and suddenly become an average ordinary citizen."

Propst had the opportunity to come to Guam to participate in the hearings but declined saying he has done his job as far as filing the ethics complaint.
