Plaintiffs want over $5 million worth of IPI assets auctioned (Northern Marianas)

The seven construction workers who are suing Imperial Pacific International (CNMI) LLC over labor violations and human trafficking have asked the U.S. District Court for the NMI to allow them to auction off IPI assets to satisfy a $5 million-plus judgment.

The plaintiffs, through New York-based lawyer Aaron Halegua, filed an application for writ of execution on IPIís property in the amount of 5,430,595.58 last Wednesday.

The list of IPI assets include computer hardware, furniture and equipment, motor vehicles, casino gaming machines, and two of IPIís crystal dragons.

In a declaration by Frances Mafnas, former IPI treasury director for IPI, dated Dec. 9, 2020, IPIís computer hardware is estimated to be at around $692,404.47, its furniture and equipment is estimated at around $2,348,230.40, IPIís motor vehicles hold a combined value of $1,347,547.03, and its casino gaming machines are valued at around $7,042,321.91.

1. It isn't well known that since at least the 90s, the U.S. Pacific Trust Territories are a huge

cesspool of exploited labor. Labor imported from the poorest Asia and S. Asia nations.

3. Now and then we hear about all that labor exploitation in, Central America, but the reports on

what has been going on in the U.S. Trust Territories is rarely mentioned.
