Corrupt Inos Orchestrates Pardon for His Pal Fitial

June 30, 2015

CNMI Governor Eloy Inos, best buddy of corrupt ex-governor Benigno Fitial, arranged for his pardon two days before his June 24, 2015 sentencing hearing.

It seems the dynamic duo had their 'no days in jail' plan in play even before Associate Judge David Wiseman issued the one year, 30 day sentence to the disgraced ex-governor.

Yesterday in a mockery of justice, the Parole Board allowed residents to submit letters. This appears to be another orchestrated event planned by Governor Inos to get the people behind his despicable act.  After all this is not a parole hearing. Fitial never spent a day in jail. It is a pardon, which the governor has the power to execute.

Yesterday the Board of Parole arranged for residents to go to the Multi-Purpose Center to drop off their letters expressing their opinion on the pardon.  Then, as expected, the Board of Parole voted to support a commutation of Fitial's jail sentence.

There could have been 300 letters opposing the pardon and 50 supporting it, and the board still would have voted the same way. This was all pre-planned. The criminal was to be pardoned even before he plead guilty to the two counts.

Perhaps Fitial threatened all of his cronies that he would spend his days in prison writing a tell-all book to expose their collusion, corruption and crime.  Perhaps Governor Inos feels a sense of loyalty to his corrupt brother in crime. Whatever the reason, justice will not be served when this criminal is pardoned.

Just my opinion, but this is a microcosm of a greater problem in our government today. The old adage of "by the people, for the people" has been hijacked by a modern day mafia that subscribes to the adage of "being a made member" under the umbrella of an "election" that has "wise guys" at the top running things. I can hear them say, "you don't like it - too bad".
Nothing in our government will change until people realize that the government itself has become an entity in which it's elected officials and employees act to protect their own interests. It's all about THEIR survival, not the people or the peoples interest who elected them. The government has become an employment agency for substandard idiots that want an easy paycheck without any oversight. I don't have any comment about the ex-governor because I don't know what all took place. But, for the sake of any argument - if this guy was guilty of pulling some unscrupulous dealings, and if your current elected officials give this guy a pass - I would seriously consider starting a petition to ask the U.S. Government to takeover over the island's management. Hey what's better? A local mafia? Or the Capo di tutti capi running things? At least with the mob bosses in Washington, they will make sure everybody is kept happy with some financial grant kickbacks......

CNMI governor Eloy Inos is signing a pardon deal for Ex-convict CNMI governor Fitial during this weekend because Eloy Inos is so happy by having the ball in his hand under CNMI constitution. CNMI constitution sucks! US constitution in CNMI must be implemented. Is DOJ taking a nap?

Lt Gov wasn't best bud of Gov. Lt Gov cut ties to Gov and worked out of home for near two year. They have long history working together. My guess he felt sorry for this guy after long time knowing him. Also didn't arrange for pardon beforhand. Questioned for conusltation. What anyone would do if they consider options. Should get story lined up before putting out on media to rile up troops.
