The investigation into whether or not Prof. Ron McNinch’s claims that he has reported crimes at UOG for 18 years is truthful, is ongoing.

Guam – Meanwhile, Gov. Calvo continues his public criticism of UOG’s handling of a recent sexual abuse case regarding prof. Michael b. Ehlert.

 

In a letter to Speaker Judi Won Pat, Gov. Calvo says that since his first statement last week, more students and faculty members have come forward to Gov. Calvos office, indirectly and directly to voice concerns about a supposed “chilling effect” on reporting crimes. The governors office said they have forwarded those concerns to GPD. In his letter, Calvo calls for an oversight hearing to look into the internal investigation of the Ehlert case. Meanwhile, Speaker Won Pat replied to Gov. Calvo’s letter, saying Vice Speaker B.J. Cruz has been meeting with university officials as well as developing legislation regarding the alleged inappropriate conduct at UOG. President Underwood, who sat down with PNC says he would welcome any sort of roundtable or oversight hearing.

 

“It doesn’t matter whether the number of incidents is high or low, if you feel insecure, it doesn’t make any difference. We are in the confidence building business that’s why we welcome the opportunity to tell the community what we’re doing,” said Underwood.
