Vincent Leon Guerrero tasked to help look into suspect CLTC leases

Posted: May 10, 2018 4:39 PM Updated:

Governor Eddie Calvo is keeping with his promise at looking into CLTC leases in Barrigada Heights, after appointing senior staffer Vincent Leon Guerrero to help assist CLTC and Department of Land Management. Leon Guerrero will not be overseeing the issue, but is studying up to assist however he can.

'Educated and unbiased' is how Adelup senior staffer Leon Guerrero plans to assist in the on-going Chamorro Land Trust lease issues in Barrigada Heights. Currently, one-fourth of leases awarded in Barrigada Heights are connected to Land Management employees and families.

Leon Guerrero told KUAM News, "One of the requests is to look at the Barrigada lease situation - How did that happen? Why did it happen? Then representing those findings in draft forms to the Commission and Land Management and if they're validated, then making recommendations specific to those."

Including looking into CLTC waiting list rules and regulations that had been passed into Guam Law and ensuring full due process is given throughout this ordeal. Leon Guerrero wants to make it clear, however, that his involvement is strictly administrative.

"I'm not getting involved in any examination of right or wrong," he said. "I believe the AG may be looking into that, specifically if there is the question of criminal intent."

The AG's office has since seized all documents relating to the Barrigada Heights lots and has started the process of investigating. When asked on the specifics of the investigation, Attorney General Elizabeth Barrett-Andersen only responded with "No comments." She added, "You'll know when all of the media knows what's happening."

In the meantime, Leon Guerrero will be meeting with the Chamorro Land Trust Commission next Thursday where he will get a clearer view at the type of support he will be providing. "Clearly, I think everybody would like the integrity of the Chamorro Land Trust and its prized and precious commodity of land to be as open and transparent of possible," he said.
