CNMI 'lawmaker's remark uncalled for, very disturbing'

Commonwealth Casino Commission board chair Edward C. DeLeon Guerrero described as “disturbing and uncalled for” a lawmaker’s statement about “dynamiting” Imperial Pacific International (CNMI) LLC’s casino/resort during a recent House Gaming Committee meeting.

In talking about the House Gaming Committee’s meeting last week during the CCC board’s monthly meeting yesterday, DeLeon Guerrero said some of the statements some CNMI’s policymakers gave at the meeting were “very disturbing” and uncalled for.

In reference to the role the CCC plays, DeLeon Guerrero said he heard a lawmaker demanding why the CCC doesn’t immediately terminate IPI’s casino license. “I heard statements about burning down facilities, smithereens,” DeLeon Guerrero said.

Commissioner Mariano Taitano said the word used by one House lawmaker was “dynamiting.”

Deleon Guerrero said those statements are uncalled for and not expected of policymakers.
