Fitial Wants to Go Home

March 11, 2014

Poor fugitive Benigno Fitial. The CNMI's ex-governor, number one schemer, top scammer, self-serving corrupter-in-chief wants to "go home" to the Marianas.

Friday, through his newly hired attorney, Stephen Nutting, Fitial broke the silence he has maintained for over a year while hiding in the Philippines.

The ex-governor  fled the CNMI in disgrace to avoid facing criminal charges. The charges against Fitial are: conspiracy to commit theft of services; conspiracy to obstruct justice by interference with service of process; conspiracy to obstruct justice by interference with a law enforcement officer or a witness; theft of services; misconduct in public office; obstructing justice by interference with a law enforcement officer or witness; and obstructing justice by interference with service of process related to the conspiracy to block service of a judicial summons to ex-Attorney General Edward Buckingham.

Now he wants the Superior Court to "quash the warrant of arrest against him" so he can make a voluntary appearance in court to face charges.

The fugitive claims that he was so overwhelmed with his illnesses and family tragedies that he could not communicate with any authorities in the CNMI for over a year.  (Just like he was overwhelmed with back pain so he had to have a masseuse released from federal custody to give him a massage?) I guess his wife could not communicate on his behalf either? Who in their right mind believes any of his jive?

It looks like Fitial saw Buckingham's slap on the hand and figured why not return for his slap. But unlike Buckingham, he'd stay in the CNMI to reap more destruction.

In a declaration filed in  Superior Court on Friday, Fitial stated:
“I have no desire to become a fugitive; forever unable to see the family and friends I have acquired throughout my lifetime.”
Through a chain of self-serving corrupt acts, Fitial inflicted immense damage on the CNMI and its citizens. His desires and wishes should not be a consideration.

The timing of his declaration comes on the heels of the statement by Governor Inos that he would extradite Fitial "if the Office of the Attorney General recommended pursing his return". The House passed a resolution calling for his extradition earlier this month.

May he receive the justice he deserves.

Fair Justice for Fitial: Who stated in the U.S. House Resources Committee hearing in August of 2007, "they are all illegals, we are processing them, soon they will be deported." referring to the aliens in the CNMI.
Justice for Fitial: Who used his power to release a federal detainee from the DOC, had him so called body massage.......Wow...American judicial system was powerless to investigate that massage gate....Please ensure the justice for Fitial....
Justice for Fitial: Who used his all power and connection to hire lobbyist, spending taxpayers money to buy illegal perks for the lobbyist and who always personally, unlawfully tried and succeed to block lawful status for the aliens. Please ensure justice for Fitial.
likewise, he may will end up getting similar sentence like our bro Buckyhum...lets enjoy the game again...

So many people suffered at his hands. He probably expects a hero's welcome. Oh earthly god you're back! He's thinking motorcades paid for by gvt. dancers with leis to greet him and Josie at the airport. Maybe a parade with his fans (all 10 of them) lining the streets. What should receive him? An UN-welcome home greeting with protesters signs held by all the nonresidents he dissed and all the citizens he cheated out of their tax money.
So sad to hear anyone is sick but you know karma's a bitch.

When I went back home to Phils. last year, I was hoping to see him and I was ready to tell him GO home!! Spit to him the hurting words he told us cws then. I want to give him back all the humiliations he gave us cws. But he deserves more than that, let the law of karma rolls to him. Now for sure, he miss home! He feels what we have been going through for years and years, and that alone will kill him softly and slowly.

Any bets Inos has already made a deal to pardon him before he leaves office if not elected? If elected he will also pardon him.
If Wiseman hears the trial and Fitial os convicted there is a slim chance that maybe Wiseman may hand out jail time.(but doubtful) of the other judges that could hear the trail, none of them will hand out any incarceration.

Don't think Fitial will be punished when he comes back. Maybe, but light sentenced like Bucky is did not do any justice. He still can influence politics here and cause more destruction. Just let him stay in Phils. he will surely suffer there. He misses his roots, CNMI as a whole, his home. It's really not enough but would devastate him being exiled forever in a foreign country. Let him be there forever and learn his lesson!!! Let us have peace here in CNMI we call home.

3:48 PM To keep the story straight:
a) Fitial didn't get a massage, he got the story straight with a human trafficker
b) His money never hired anyone, it was Willie's

Who is funding his attorney fee? Is it Tan? Is he encouraged to come back Saipan to make sure that exclusive casino business takes place here in Saipan? Is he coming back Saipan because he sees the trimming sentencing picture? He must be extradited from Phil to Saipan? A fugitive is not to be excused. He is the reason “improved immigration provision for NON-Immigrant workers in CNMI was removed from U.S Public law: 110-229 or Consolidated Natural Resources Act”. CW program administered by USCIS getting expired on December 31, 2014 places all non-immigrant workers and CNMI businesses in a limbo. No extension will happen. USCIS has the discretion authority to allow a foreign worker to stay or leave United States of America. Now CNMI government has nothing to worry about because they get what they wished for. Non-immigrant workers in CNMI are in the hands of U.S government now. It is up to Feds, they may offer these workers improved immigration status on January 1, 2015 or before December 31, 2014. Hope that Feds consider the valuable services of Non-immigrant workers in CNMI and their contributions to its development (U.S territory).
