• 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...

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.

Dr. Martin Guiles, PacIOOS Senior Physical Oceanographic Research Specialist and project lead explains that "along with a more accurate analysis of the tides, the high sea level forecast tool utilizes analyses of several kinds of non-tidal sea level variability that can add to the height of the tide to produce unexpected flooding in the absence of storms or tsunamis." The predictions include influences of currents and whirlpools that evolve over days as well as shorter period motions. This new m...

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."

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 further revealed that the government was "spending nearly double per month on Compact counsel for the services of Independent legal counsel Jeffrey Farrow" and other legal advisors compared to the government's current costs of one attorney. 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."

In a press conference earlier this week, President Remengesau said the law will not take effect until October 2013, so the impact is not clear. 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.

The newly merged corporation will be known as the Palau Public Utilities Corporation. According to the President's office, the legislation would provide cost-savings through a number of consolidated services such shared customer service staff, meter reading and billing preparation, and a single billing document. The President expressed that in signing the bill, the Republic will takes significant step towards reforming its public utilities. With the signing of the bill, Palau will be able to receive the second portion of the $16 million dollar Asia Development Bank (ADB) loan. The new law will become effective through executive order by the President. However, the President can order certain provisions of the act to take effect at different times. In addition to the Utilities Consolidation Act, the President also signed the 2013 fiscal year budget and the tobacco legislation into law.

President Remengesau's nominee for the Special Prosecutor's position is now a legal counsel in the Republic. Don Dorfman is the new legal counsel for the Ethics Commission and the Public Auditor's office. Information gathered by OTV reveals that Dorfman, who was up for the SP position has been on island for a few weeks since entering into a contract with the Ethics Commission. President Remengesau nominated Dorfman for the SP position in July this year, but Dorfman was twice rejected by the Senate. A few weeks ago during a meeting with traditional and elected leaders at Palasia Hotel, President Remengesau expressed his intent to resubmit his name to the Senate for reconsideration. OTV contacted the Senate office who revealed that they have not received a nomination letter from the President in regards to Don Dorfman as of date. OTV's efforts to reach Dorfman were not successful as of this news report.

By Rolynda Jonathan On February 11, Associate Justice Kate Salii ordered a 16-year old juvenile to serve a five-year jail sentence after failing to comply with the conditions set forth in his probation. The Attorney General's office in a press release to the media states that the teen was in court for the fifth time regarding the status of his probation for a grand larceny charge. After continuously violating the terms of his probation and committing a new crime while on probation, the court determined that all other options have been exhausted and ordered the teen to serve jail time. Similarly on January 30, in a case before Associate Justice Lourdes Materne another 16-year old teen was ordered to serve jail time for probation violation and for also committing a new crime while on probation. Similar to the case before Justice Salii, Justice Materne determined that the all options have been exhausted and the juvenile was sentenced to serve 5-years in jail. The 16-year old was on probation for charges of grand larceny and petty larceny. The court noted that although sentencing the two juveniles to prison is not favorable, there was no other option.

A new model developed by a team of physical oceanographers has forecasted potential sea level flooding in and around the Malakal area in Palau. A team working with the Pacific Islands Ocean Observing System based in Hawaii developed the model called the PacIOOS Six-Day High Sea Level Forecasts. Dr. Martin Guiles, PacIOOS Senior Physical Oceanographic Research Specialist and project lead explains that "along with a more accurate analysis of the tides, the high sea level forecast tool utilizes analyses of several kinds of non-tidal sea level variability that can add to the height of the tide to produce unexpected flooding in the absence of storms or tsunamis." The predictions include influences of currents and whirlpools that evolve over days as well as shorter period motions. This new model was developed in response to requests from ocean stakeholders in the region. The forecasted sea level flooding in Malakal reportedly occurs over the weekend according to the PacIOOS model. According to the tide schedule for Palau, high tide will reach over 6 feet for the next few days. The model also forecasted a potential sea level flooding in Apra Harbor in Guam.

Avui tocava el Cros d'Agramunt, però donat que fan cursa nova a El Palau d'Anglesola he anat a fer el video pel meu calendari visual. Tot el poble estava avocat amb controls i organitzadors arreu . Han hagut d'ampliar inscripcions per la gran demanda de sol·licituts . Han obert inscripcions per a 100 nous inscrits. En total 400 atletes que no està gens malament. El recorregut es pla amb rectes llargues. Primer tram urbà i un segon per camins i asfalt. Ha fet molt bo. Això no és hivern. Per mi ja m'està molt bé. A lo llarg de la cursa han possat unes preguntes i al cap de pocs metres les respostes. Al menys són originals. Serveix per distreure't un pèl tot plegat. Com sempre la gent es dirigeix a mi com si formés part de l'organització. M'han demanat una distància de 5 km per l'any vinent i m'han felicitat per l'organització ... Doncs d'acord. Moltes gràcies ! Enhorabona per tot plegat. Cros Agramunt played today, but since they run a new El Palau d'Anglesola I went to the video on my calendar view. The whole town was lawyer with controls and organizers everywhere. They had to expand enrollment to the high demand for inquiries. Opened 100 new registrations for registered. A total of 400 athletes is not bad. The route plan with long straights. First section and a second urban roads and asphalt. He has done very good. This is not winter. For me it me very well. In the course of the race they might put some questions and answers a few meters. At least they are originals. It serves to distract a little all. As people always addresses me as if it were part of the organization. I asked for a distance of 5 km by next year and the organization congratulated me ... Well, agree. Thank you very much ! Congratulations to all. Hoy tocaba el Cros de Agramunt, pero dado que hacen carrera nueva en El Palau d'Anglesola he ido a hacer el video para mi calendario visual.

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 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."

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, 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.
