GHURA Special Assistant Melinda "Millie" Taitano was questioned about an email chain to poll GHURA board commissioners which was sent out in April 2015, related to the ratification of the agency's credit card policy.

Trial resumed today with the cross-examination of the government’s third witness, Millie Taitano, who was granted full immunity to testify in the case involving Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority (GHURA) executives who allegedly conspired to violate the open government law.

Straight to the point, Roland Selvidge’s attorney questioned former GHURA Special Assistant Melinda “Millie” Taitano about an email chain to poll GHURA board commissioners which was sent out in April 2015, related to the ratification of the agency’s credit card policy.

It was stated that in 2015, then GHURA executive director Michael Duenas, and former chairman David Sablan authorized the polling of GHURA executives based on the information received from then GHURA Attorney Anthony Perez.

But will that be enough for the jury to determine that no violation occurred? While that remains to be seen, trial in the matter will continue with Duenas taking the stand this week.
