He needs ti be improsened right away!!!! We don't need people like that in our Govt. especially labor office!!!

Alii Alii e Ouuch, may be your on the same road, beware of those watchful eyes..lol..

TR had eight years to lock this guy up. Everyone around town except the proper authorities spoke in hushed tones about this guys guilt. I hope JT personally sees to it that RM is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I begining to wonder if Islander and his mind's posse have been right all along. If this is only the tip of the iceberg then TR's legacy as President is going down the tubes if anyone else under his watch is convicted of wrongdoing. It will be a sad day for our country. And for what? everyone knows that greed is the root of all evil but then again that's just me.

All men are innocent until proven guilty.

RM deserves a day in court.

Beware of what the media says. This could be you victimized by the media and court of public sentiment.

The truth shall prevail.

Just as we try to be self sufficient and the money becomes a major factor in our lives, greed becomes our only best friend. The more you feed yourself with greed the more powerful you become.

Isn't it funny how we refer to palauan language when dealing with something that is totally embarrassing to us? The fact of the matter is that everyone knows what goes on in our country. We have yet to get over the problem of people elected to office, taking care of their own special interests before doing their job of finding a way of saving our country from the economic problems we have and will continue to suffer. Since the beginning of our so called discovery by Capt. Wilson and all the people that came after him, we have learned to love money... Be it pesetas, yen, what is now the euro, and last but not least the mighty green back dollar... People in our beloved Belau no longer have the means of getting to money as they once did in the past. All land is owned by the few or the government; money making businesses (dive shops, restaurants, tour operations, etc., etc.,) are mostly operated by foreigners who don't need to be reminded that money is in the pockets of the outsider visitors... If you are not attached (front), you only have one other option- government. The Masayos' have been here and operating strongly since the beginning of our take over of our own government reins. The problem of corruption has always been there. It has never stopped and it will never end. This latest thing with Masayos is all based on the testimony of one corrupt filipina who is in hiding. The spec. prosecuter, in his infinite wisdom, is looking for something to boost his existence and justify his salary... He has nothing to hold Masayos or anyone else. We are an easily corrupted people because we have nothing. Look at all that J.T. is doing now... Everyone loved him so when he took office.. How about now? Belau, for all it's physical beauty, will never amount to anything until we find the way to set our priorities straight and find the people that will make the difference. We are fooling ourselves when we say that we can do it all ourselves. We are corrupt, totally blind and we will always find a way to take three steps back for every one outsiders/outside help moves us forward. The older I get, the more I realize that living away from my beloved Belau is the only option.

belaubanana, you must be kidding. Palauans don't need people so negative like you. There is a palauan saying and I quote," ngmla mo medinges a obechad." if you know the meaning of this quote you are a good person, if not you're not a good commentator, or should I say kedimelbesiaol.ma uriul.

Assuming my good friend is guilty, let this be a catalyst for making STRONGER AND SCARY LAWS to limit corruptions (there will always be corruptions)....


Look, this whole alleged wrongdoing by Russeell and his other partners (allegedly govt high officials like directors in other agencies) has to have for a reason, not just for us to talk and speculate.

Oh my dear Palauans, are we just going to talk and let it pass????

Santy, kau ma re mengeteklem, when truth is confirmed that a group of govt officials are guilty of this alleged crime, take to the street and let's protest for changes.

Ak mla mo mesaik el omes e di mesaod a delngerengel ra elsel a blai!!!

I desperately plea with you all to do something...after the court. The Court's final confirmation of crime and punishment is NOT ENUF!!!


I hope you come to realization that fighting corruption begins with courage and lots of sacrifice. Until you and many others come out and openly speak against it culprits will carry on their activity as if the community is okay with it. There need to be more than just me saying things against corruption.

It is funny because people like Yuki and Otto who are men of good character and integrity are not popular. This has not discouraged me to speak against wrong doing in our society hoping that someday more people like you will come out to the open and fight against it. If people have the courage to come out of the closet to reveal their sexual preference, I am having a hard time understanding why people are not coming out against corruption in the open. You tell me.

Balas has not e-mailed me yet so I not sure if I am also to be feared. Of what I do not know. My e-mail is santyasanuma@gmail.com. And I never reveal people's name in my writing if I am not given the go signal. Read my article in Tia Belau about the Christian Faith being attacked by proponents of gaming. This is also corruption.



We know that you have obtained copy of charges file by SP last Friday, July 3rd against Former President Tommy

i wonder if Masayos connected to TRjr. during his administration. If so, that's a lot of money and ppl to move around.

i wonder too if convicted, should replacement a relative or connected to JT in some way?

Senators, this is a good proposal. Propose a law that will prosecute government officials to the fullest.

For those who serve in the highest agency or governemnt seat(s)and are found quilty, prosecute and do not appoint them in any governmentt seats, and take away all their benefits.

I am sure there are few Palauan left who are honest and are able to perform these work. Unless you guys don't want because it might get you in jail. Although, if you are honest then I would propose this one.

Funny, we have always wondered what kind of salary a chief of labor makes to have a comfortable life in Ngiwal let alone a title that he quickly acquired as a new employee surpassing all senior employees who had been there for many years. There will always be corruption but we can overcome it by making good choices with good intentions. Cheers.


I do not wish to destroy people but at the same time I am not going to be silent on their evil ways. SP is doing his job and this is still a case and until the fat lady sings (and I am not saying any of the judges is fat, especially the lady judges), therefore it is still waiting to be heard in the court of law. Until then there is no ascertaining guilt to anyone. Now the question remains are you coming out to the open and fight against corruption or not.

A friend of mine who is following this blog and I are speculating that many postings are coming from government employees themselves since they have access to computers and internet. So if you are using government computers beware because they can find out where you have been in your computers. This is another waste of time, resource, and people which also contribute to the on-going financial struggle in our government. This is corruption if you ask me.

So don't look at the big fish only...e le ng di sensond e mrecherchii a klengoes...as the old Palauan saying goes. There is no such thing as small corruption so be careful before you throw stones at others.

Senator Diaz was indicted for allowing someone in during his talk show saying things in anonymity against Olkeriil and his family. Since IP addresses can be traced, be extra careful in what you say.

But there is no better way than be yourself in the open. No pen name to hide behind. I invite all of you to become warriors against corruption in the open. And I have heard all the reasons from those who wish to remain anonymous but I do not buy any of them. Join the fight now and save Palau.



If you are government employee go to internet cafe and post your comment, do not use government computer you may end up losing your job.

Alii Omtikl,

A kbai omdasu el kmo tial siukang er kid a bai mla tomellid. Kede kmal mla osichii a tekoi e, "Lomenguul" meng mla mutek a ngerir a rechad el mo diak losaod ra remeklou el elbiruekl a omerellir.

Just my thoughts


Can anyone update the status of Melekeok State Governor’s case? Just wondering.

Omtikl & Mosi,
I think you both have a point. There is no doubt that it is the love of money & power that causes all these. We want to be “so & so” of the clan or the government so that we can be “kuoll”, have control over things and have a paycheck to cash. We zip our mouth and turn our head away for any wrong doing of older people, particularly close relative or prominent public figure. Just take a look at PSB fiasco. Is it fair to say it is part of our tradition already? LOL.
Basically, we are killing ourselves slowly.


In reality that's how it is HS.

Majority of our leaders in many ways has more sources of income beefing up their wallet aside from their government pay-check.

I have no qualms/dispute against it...BUT, lets be fair, everything they do only benefits them at both ends.

Let's put it this way.
"A sengsongd a merecherchii a klengoes/kauang"..refers to the young generation/young ppl who are bold brave and have the courage to stand up and take the first step and fight for what is right.
If this step is not taken, then the rich becomes more rich and the poor becomes more poor.

It sounds funny HS but..it is alresdy our tradition.
