Wait to go Mr. Copeland!!!

Lets wait and see if he gets punished appropriately, meaning "JAIL TIME" to the highest extent. "Precedence" and "Landmark Case" must be set for new and upcoming politicians.

Diaz says and I quote, that every government in every country has corruption in one way or the other..... This presents the perception to people that its okay, and that we cannot do something about it...Lets step out of the status quo, and elminiate the "SACRED COWS" theory, and step into the realm of innovation for our future sovereign nation.

Let's wait & see, it's way too early call the shot. I guarantee, when it's all over.. Mr. Kodep will walk out just like the last time! :)

"from April 2003 until 2007 on at least 100 separate occasions"

Any other place in the world, that person would be jailed for a minimum of 15 years for that. Keep stealing cookie from the cookie jar and you are bound to get caught.


It is really about time that high government officials who violates the trust that were entrusted on them when they took their respective oath of offices be accountable to their actions. While the presumption of innocence has to be considered, we live in a very small society so people would know. However, we are also victims of an extended family system where we become enablers of illegal activities where we tend to either look the other way or intentionally ignoring the actions. I sincerely hope that the prosecution has good evidence to convict this leader, if he is really guilty, otherwise if not his reputation politically and otherwise, would be ruined.

Kodeb has confessed/admitted to the allegations.

I'm just really upset that this guy stole the money to pay for his loan. Like the rest of us, we work hard to pay our bulls. Anyone take a drive thru the state of Melekeok and witness the road not complete to the other side of town. And nothing is significantly has changed in the last say sixteen years or more. It saddened me to know that his personal interest supercede the interest of the people ma beluu. A rengmiu tiang belumiu el di kemiu el tang. I hope he step down and let someone else hopely do a better job.

Uchelmelis,
Confessing is another thing but in our society people tend to be too forgiving rather quickly. For example, Ibedul beat up a man with a baseball bat, is convicted, but later had his sentence commuted by TR. Ibedul then later beat up Santos Olikong and his sister goes out and pay Santos close to hundred grand, and he walks. Now I am hearing some very prominent people beginning to feel sorry for him because he confessed. I hope the court will look at the crime and act accordingly.

Bekai.

likewise I do hope that the court will follow the the precedent it set before on the former governor of Ngiwal-Elmis Mesubed, and send Governmor Kodeb to Jail.

I agree with you all that this guy needs to go in the rat cell!! Just hope that they do have good evidence to him away!! yes if all the facts are straight then Gov. Mesubed has set the preceedent!!

Hey! just hold on a minuite!

Let us not pretend to be shocked and horrified about this public official stealing from the government's coffers!

The highest politicians Nakamura, Remengesau, TS ES and many others of their cronies have been skimming and stealing from Palau for the last 16 years on a huge scale - millions of dollars have been missued and stolen!

Our country is bankrupt because of this, so let's convict everyone who stole.

Sulang
Do not make this guy a fall guy that everyone wants to crusify while the real monsters get away!

Sulang

there you go speaking that nonsense once again. someone must have done something to you to make you so pathetic. You are the only one talking about a fall guy when not one blogger, palauan or newspaper has has so much as hinted towards one. not to mention your same ol' BS towards tr and kn are still empty and hollow like a makeshift palauan bbq pit.

Give the man a break, pray for him and all his good work he has done for his state...Kudos to governor Kodep, you "rock"!!!

"kudos to governor Kodep" as you said, what is there to rock about? He shouldn't have stolen the money in the first place. I wonder if the people are still loyal to him knowing what he has done. If he was "usemuul el medengei a ungil ma mekngit" why did he attempt to break the law in the first place?

Let us be proud that he has the guts to admit......Lets be happy that he admit, diak loumulak.....but please let the Palau and our gov't official stop doing these....they can be rich by stealing but HEY AREN'T THEY GUILTY PAYING THEIR LOANS, FEED THEIR FAMILIES, PLAY WITH THE MONEY AND OTHERS ARE SUFFERING?
