  • Palau Hires High-Profile Texan Lawyer As New AAG

    The Republic of Palau has hired a high-profile Texas prosecutor as a new Assistant Attorney General. Former Texas District Attorney John Bradley who served as the state's DA for more than decade has accepted the position with Palau's AG's office and will begin in mid-July disclosed the President's office. Bradley who is known as a tough prosecutor was a subject of two controversial murder cases in Texas a few years ago. According to reports, as a Chairman of the Texas Forensic Science Commission in 2009, Bradley and the Innocence Project battled over re-examining the case of Cameron Todd Willingham, a man who was executed in 2004 for reportedly igniting an arson that killed his three daughters. For about six years, he also fought the Innocence Project's efforts to exonerate Michael Mor...

  • Palau Gov to pay for 13 defense lawyers in prostitution case

    By Rolynda Jonathan On May 30, 2013, three prominent women in Palau's justice system, the Hon. Judge Kate Salii, Attorney General, Victoria Roe, and Public Defender, Lalii Sakuma, were all at work on the arraignment of defendants in the biggest prostitution and human trafficking case in Palau's history. All defendants, except for Mark Doran, who represented himself, claimed that they were without sufficient funds to afford a lawyer. This means that the government will have to appoint a lawyer for each defendant at no cost to the defendant. Considering the number of defendants, providing a legal defense in this case it is likely to be very costly. Another looming issue in this case is simply whether there are enough criminal defense lawyers in Palau to represent these 13 defendant, sin...

  • Palau Remittance Tax Criticized, President Asked To Repeal Law

    By Rolynda Jonathan The new remittance tax, which requires non-Palauans to pay 4% on money wired out of Palau, has been highly criticized. In a letter dated May 14th, Kaleb Udui Jr Palau's Chamber of Commerce President asked President Remengesau to repeal the remittance law. Udui Jr. expressed his concern that not only does the new tax unfairly discriminate against foreigners in violation of Palau's Constitution, it also imposes a double tax as the same funds that are subject to Gross Receipts Tax are also subject to this new 4% remittance tax. Additionally, the measure, he says, poses practical problems on an operational level. He points out that it does not include guidance for financial institutions to determine whether the transfer is taxable. Udui also noted that there is no ...

For about six years, he also fought the Innocence Project's efforts to exonerate Michael Morton, who was wrongfully convicted of killing his wife under Bradley's former boss. Although it was Bradley's predecessor who hid evidence to secure Morton's life sentence, critics believed Bradley belittled Morton's claims of innocence and strongly fought testing of DNA evidence that had the power to set him free. In a press statement to the media, Palau's President's office expressed that Bradley "readily admits that he made a serious error in judgment by not agreeing to the DNA testing, and is painfully aware that his actions kept an innocent man locked up for longer than he should have been." Furthermore President Remengesau believes Bradley deserves a second chance. He expressed, "Everyone makes mistakes and if we learn from those mistakes we become better people."

This means that the government will have to appoint a lawyer for each defendant at no cost to the defendant. Considering the number of defendants, providing a legal defense in this case it is likely to be very costly. Another looming issue in this case is simply whether there are enough criminal defense lawyers in Palau to represent these 13 defendant, since after the initial appearance, the Public Defender can only continue to represent one defendant. There are approximately 15 private lawyers in Palau many of whom have already asserted a conflict that would prevent them from representing any defendant in this case. The case stems from allegations that Filipina women were trafficked to Palau and then threatened and coerced into prostitution. The prostitution ring was allegedly run by Palauan businessman Lucius Malsol and his employee Richard Huang, a Taiwanese national, along with Richard's wife, Mercilyn Huang, a Philippine national. Prosecutors claim that Palauan police officer Marsei Orrekum was also a partner in the operation, with his name appearing on the Shangrila Massage and Spa lease, bank account and labor documents. Ten other defendants also face charges in relation to the case including an immigration officer and a former senatorial candidate.

The Press Office could not reveal the exact amount the government was spending for legal counsel services for Farrow and now for Chanin due to the confidentially clause of their contracts, but sources say Chanin is being paid the same rate as Farrow. Chanin will be assisting the Republic in lobbying for the Compact with the U.S. House and Senate members. The Press Office disclosed that, "the Office of the President is confident that it has secured sound representation at a reasonable cost."

He expressed his support for the new tax saying some of the money earned in Palau should be retained. A lawsuit challenging the new measure is rumored to be in development.

On May 22, 2013, Palau's Attorney General charged Richard Huang and 13 others, including an attorney, Mark Doran, a police officer, Marsei Orrukem, the former President of Palau's brother, Lucius Malsol, and former Senatorial candidate, Earnest Ongidobel, in a criminal complaint that included offenses of prostitution, money laundering and human trafficking allegedly occurring at the DW Motel and Shangri-la Massage and Spa. In 2012 Feng Jui Huang (aka "Richard" Huang), a Taiwanese national and foreign worker in Palau, publicly accused Palau Senator Hokkins Baules of framing him in a prostitution ring and money-laundering scheme. Huang went international with these accusations and even asked Taiwan nationals to refrain from visiting Palau and asked the Taiwan government to suspend financial assistance to Palau. The Shangri-la Massage operation attracted the attention of local authorities when six of its workers from the Philippines filed complaints with the Palau labor department over allegations that they have been forced into the sex trade. Police acted quickly on the information and immediately executed warrants at both the motel and the massage parlor seizing assets, including cash found on the premises. On May 23, 2013, the day after filing the charges, the Attorney General issued a "Press Release" explaining that the criminal charges stemmed from a "five month investigation by the Financial Intelligence Unit." The Attorney General also stated that each of the 14 co-defendants were charged with one or more of the following charges: human trafficking and exploiting a trafficked person, prostitution (advancing prostitution and profiting from prostitution), money laundering, and unlawful wage, work, and employee restrictions. The release did not identify which defendants were facing which charges or the possible penalties. Despite the fact that the defendants were not yet served with the criminal complaint outlining the charges against them, on May 23, 2013, Palau's local newspaper, Tia Belau, featured a front-page story on the case leaking the names of some of the defendants. After seeing the headline news article and on the same afternoon that the government issued its press release, one of the named defendants, Lucius Malsol, went to Palau's Courthouse to get a copy of the Complaint against him. Malsol was told that he could not have a copy because the documents were still being "processed." Several other Defendants have also informed OTV that they still have not been served with the documents that set forth their alleged violations of the law. Under Palau law, the defendants may be eligible for a jury trial if they face more than 12 years of imprisonment for their alleged offenses. The other defendants named in the Attorney General's Press Release are Mercilyn Huang, Nescie Sebastian, Mylene Bautista, Mhohanna Demesa, Lea Montanez, Rodelyn Santos, Rolley Chico Tsuneo, Xiulin LI, and Likai Jiang. OTV will continue to update its viewers regarding this case.

What is PROTECTORATE? What does PROTECTORATE mean? PROTECTORATE meaning - PROTECTORATE pronunciation - PROTECTORATE definition & explanation - How to pronounce PROTECTORATE? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A protectorate, in its inception adopted by modern international law, is a dependent territory that has been granted local autonomy and some independence while still retaining the suzerainty of a greater sovereign state. In exchange for this, the protectorate usually accepts specified obligations, which may vary greatly, depending on the real nature of their relationship. Therefore, a protectorate remains an autonomous part of a sovereign state. They are different from colonies as they have local rulers and people ruling over the territory and experience rare cases of immigration of settlers from the country it has suzerainty of. However, a state which remains under the protection of another state but still retains independence is known as a protected state and is different from protectorates. In amical protection, the terms are often very favorable for the protectorate. The political interest of the protector is frequently moral (a matter of accepted moral obligation, prestige, ideology, internal popularity, dynastic, historical, or ethno-cultural ties, etc.) or countering a rival or enemy power (e.g., preventing the rival from obtaining or maintaining control of areas of strategic importance). This may involve a very weak protectorate surrendering control of its external relations; this, however, may not constitute any real sacrifice, as the protectorate may not have been able to have similar use of them without the protector's strength. Amical protection was frequently extended by the great powers to other Christian (generally European) states and to smaller states that had no significant importance. In the post-1815 period, non-Christian states (such as China's Qing dynasty) also provided amical protection towards other much weaker states. In modern times, a form of amical protection can be seen as an important or defining feature of microstates. According to the definition proposed by Dumienski (2014): "microstates are modern protected states, i.e. sovereign states that have been able to unilaterally depute certain attributes of sovereignty to larger powers in exchange for benign protection of their political and economic viability against their geographic or demographic constraints" Examples of microstates understood as modern protected states include such states as Liechtenstein, San Marino, Monaco, Niue, the Cook Islands, and Palau. Conditions regarding protection are generally much less generous for areas of colonial protection. The protectorate was often reduced to a de facto condition similar to a colony, but using the pre-existing native state as an agent of indirect rule. Occasionally, a protectorate was established by or exercised by the other form of indirect rule: a chartered company, which becomes a de facto state in its European home state (but geographically overseas), allowed to be an independent country which has its own foreign policy and generally its own armed forces.

On their arrival in Palau, the local paper described them as, ‘six bearded Muslim terrorists in shackles.’ One of the men, Adel, states simply, "I am not dangerous." China is now demanding their return, in order to face charges of separatism. If Australia continues to refuse the US plea to offer them refuge, they may have a dark fate ahead of them. Their lawyer explains: "The truth is, they are caught between the US and China - and that's not a place you want to be.”" SBS Australia – Ref. 4642 Journeyman Pictures is your independent source for the world's most powerful films, exploring the burning issues of today.
