Over in the CNMI, local authorities inked an MOU to create the White-Collar Crime, Government Corruption, and Financial Crimes Task Force.  Investigators from the NMI Attorney General’s office, the Office of the Public Auditor, and the Department of Public Safety will make up the task force.

In a joint media statement, the heads of the agencies say, “The collaboration and partnership among the law enforcement agencies are vital to holding those accountable for the waste and abuse of public funds and other criminal conduct”.

An assigned prosecutor will be supervising the task force.
