2 Page 2 samoa news, Wednesday, October 15, 2014 Native Hawaiian Holding ompany official indicted on new criminal charges Facial SPA ASIAN ASSAGE ENTER Shiatsu Reflexology Oil assage OBINATION $45 for 60 minutes Location: Beside Brenda s Photoshop in Nuuuli Phone no: Business Hours: 10:00 am to 10:00 pm by Fili Sagapolutele, Samoa News orrespondent Federal court documents have revealed that Native Hawaiian Holding ompany (NHH) president Quin Ngoc Rudin is an alleged coconspirator in a new criminal case filed last month at the federal court in San Francisco, alif. Rudin pled guilty in February this year in the first case against him, a three count indictment handed down last year at the federal court in San Francisco. In this new case, Rudin is accused of defrauding isco Systems Inc. and its subsidiary isco Systems apital orporation and Altura Pharmaceuticals, Inc. through his own company called G Digital. The plea agreement, along with other court filings in the case, is sealed by order of the court. There is no date in electronic court records as to when Rudin will be sentenced for the first case but federal prosecutors in a motion filed Oct. 3 say that a grand jury indictment handed down Sept. 23 this year naming ichael Q. ai as a defendant and the case relates to a scheme to defraud Oracle America, Inc., a subsidiary of alifornia based Oracle orporation. The two count indictment alleges conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud, and engaging in a monetary transaction with criminally derived funds, said prosecutors, adding that Rudin is alleged to be a co-conspirator with ai in this new case. Prosecutors say the first case against Rudin and the second one against ai are two related cases because they concern one or more of the same defendants. And although Rudin is named as a defendant in the ai case, he is nevertheless alleged to be a co-conspirator and a participant in the scheme to defraud in that case, court documents state. Prosecutors also say that the government expects that Rudin s activities will be at issue in the ai case. For this reason, it will be more efficient for the judge who will ultimately sentence Rudin to preside over the ai case, they say. U.S. District ourt Jon S. Tigar has not issued a ruling on the prosecutor s request to combine the Rudin and ai cases. In the meantime, ai is scheduled to be arraigned later this week before a magistrate judge in San Francisco. In the ai indictment, the grand jury alleges that Rudin, who resides in Southern alifornia, held himself out as being an associate of Dearborne ircle, LL, which is owned and controlled by ai. Rudin is also an associate of ertus Solutions Inc. The indictment alleges that ai, Rudin and an individual with initials. agreed that they would fraudulently induce Oracle to permit Dearborne and ertus to re-sell Oracle software, licenses and technical support services to Pension Benefit Guaranty orporation (PBG), a federal agency. However, the trio would then fail, decline and refuse to pay Oracle for such software, licenses and technical support services, even after Dearborn/ertus had received payment from PBG, the indictment alleges, and noted that the fraud scheme occurred between August and October It also alleges that in August 2009, PBG accepted Dearborne s bid to sell software, licenses and technical support services for $908,504 and a PBG employee along with ai signed the purchase order for the same amount. However, Dearborne was not an authorized Oracle partner or re-seller, it said and alleged that the trio received the funds but never paid any of the money to Oracle, which was in the business of providing data base and application software to businesses and organizations, among other products. Samoa News should point out that the two federal cases do not give any indication that Rudin is an official with NHH. BAGROUND Rudin, along with NHH s EO Dennis anahele, G Digital, ommunity Investment orporation and others are named as defendants in a close to $4 million civil suit file in April this year by the local Attorney General s Office at the High ourt of American Samoa. NHH was contracted in 2011 by ASG to provide training and employment in the contact center industry for 900 NEG participants, and authorized it to operate job placement and supportive services in a setting that would serve as part of the Workforce Investment Act Workforce System which was overseen by Human Resources. However, a federal audit found unallowable costs of $2.53 million, in which the U.S. Department of Labor is seeking repayment from ASG. (Details of the lawsuit are found in the Apr. 7 edition of Samoa News) ASG s lawsuit alleges fraud, failure to pay taxes, compensatory damages, exemplary punitive damages, and unjust enrichment.

[photo: J. neubuhl] AS to host ongressional Forum By James neubuhl, AS Press Officer The nine candidates in the running for American Samoa s congressional seat have been invited by the Student Government Association (SGA) at the American Samoa ommunity ollege (AS) to participate in a ongressional Forum that will take place on Thursday, October 23, from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in the ollege s Gymnasium. Although the candidates will only address questions from AS students during the question-and-answer portion of the forum, the public is still welcome to attend and observe. With excitement already building on the AS campus, the SGA is encouraging all students to attend this forum and to actively participate in the political process that will strongly influence the future of the Territory. This forum will give students an opportunity to see and hear what the candidates are really like, as opposed to what people are telling us about them, observed SGA Secretary Lottie Haleck. It s a chance to question each candidate about their platforms and their plans for our future. our vote is your voice in our government. It s important for AS students to attend so that they will be able to make a truly informed decision on Election Day. SGA Sophomore Representative Ina Tupufia echoed the sentiment that young adults concerned about the future direction of their home should take advantage of their voting power. This forum is important for the students of AS because we should care for the future of American Samoa, she said. It s important that we students have a chance to hear first hand from candidates, because sometimes our parents or our family try to influence our decision as to who is truly qualified. If American Samoa is going to have a bright and prosperous future, we have to make our votes count. With so many vying this year to represent us in ongress, SGA Freshmen Representative erry Seuseu encouraged her fellow students to take this opportunity to better understand the candidates. The forum will make students better informed and give them the opportunity to decide for themselves which of those running have what it takes to qualify for the seat, she said. Voting is a sign that you believe in democracy and that you feel that is a worthwhile and important thing every time you vote. SGA Honorary ember Joseph Vitaliano also feels that when weighing choices, nothing can substitute for listening to the candidates interact with each other and address questions from the public. Students should be fully aware of the background and eligibility of the candidates so they can choose for themselves who they feel would govern our Territory equally and fairly, he said. Also, if they have questions or doubts, the forum will provide students with a chance to voice them.

Nurses were forced to use medical tape to secure openings in their flimsy garments, worried that their necks and heads were exposed as they cared for a patient with explosive diarrhea and projectile vomiting, said Deborah Burger of National Nurses United. Burger convened a conference call with reporters to relay what she said were concerns of nurses at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, where Thomas Eric Duncan the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in the U.S. died last week. RoseAnn Deoro, executive director of Nurses United, said the statement came from several and a few nurses, but she refused repeated inquiries to state how many. She said the organization had vetted the claims, and that the nurses cited were in a position to know what had occurred at the hospital. She refused to elaborate. Among the nurses allegations was that the Ebola patient s lab samples were allowed to travel through the hospital s pneumatic tubes, opening the possibility of contaminating the specimen delivery system. The nurses also alleged that hazardous waste was allowed to pile up to the ceiling. Duncan died Oct. 8, and the hospital said Sunday that one of his nurses had tested positive for Ebola. She is hospitalized and was listed Tuesday in good condition. Wendell Watson, a Presbyterian spokesman, did not respond to specific claims by the nurses but said the hospital has not received similar complaints. Patient and employee safety is our greatest priority and we take compliance very seriously, he said in a statement. We have numerous measures in place to provide a safe working environment, including mandatory annual training and a 24/7 hotline and other mechanisms that allow for anonymous reporting. He said the hospital would review and respond to any concerns raised by our nurses and all employees. The nurses alleged that: Duncan was kept in a non-isolated area of the emergency department for several hours, potentially exposing up to seven other patients to Ebola; Patients who may have been exposed to Duncan were kept in isolation only for a day before being moved to areas where there were other patients; Nurses treating Duncan were also caring for other patients in the hospital; Preparation for Ebola at the hospital amounted to little more than an optional seminar for staff; In the face of constantly shifting guidelines, nurses were allowed to follow whichever ones they chose. There was no advance preparedness on what to do with the patient, there was no protocol, there was no system, Burger said. Va aiga Fou o A Taeao! A New Vision for A Brighter Tomorrow!

Adam Patrick ondrat and Sabrina J. Torres were arrested after an off-duty railroad police officer intervened in the onday morning brawl near an elementary school and a middle school and several on-duty police arrived at the scene several miles southeast of the Las Vegas Strip, according to the report. The off-duty officer, retired Las Vegas police Sgt. Robert Gibbs, received several stitches for a facial injury suffered during the scuffle, police said. The crossing guard, identified as Dano cay, was treated at a hospital for cuts and bruises, according to the report. ondrat and Torres were held Tuesday at the lark ounty jail pending an initial court appearance. It wasn t immediately clear if they had lawyers. Police said neither was available for interviews. Torres was held on misdemeanor battery, conspiracy and false statement to an officer charges, according to jail records. ondrat was held on felony battery, mayhem and intimidating a public officer charges and several misdemeanor counts. Police said he fought with arresting officers and threatened to have friends kill the officers and their families. A witness told police that cay waved his hand-held red stop sign as ondrat approached driving an Audi sedan toward a crosswalk on aryland Parkway near Silverado Ranch Boulevard. She told police that ondrat emerged from the vehicle shouting, punching and kicking the crossing guard, who police said is more than 60 years old. harges filed against five teens in ice bucket prank LEVELAND (AP) Five suburban teenage boys were charged with dumping a bucket of urine, water and tobacco spit on an autistic 15-year-old boy who thought he was participating in the ice bucket challenge for charity. The uyahoga ounty prosecutor s office filed the charges Tuesday in juvenile court against the teens, who are between the ages of 14 and 16. Three of the teens face juvenile charges of delinquency, assault and disorderly conduct. They will be asked to go with their parents to the Bay Village police station to be booked. The other two teens were charged with disorderly conduct and will be sent summons to appear in court. All the teens, including the victim, are from Bay Village near leveland and attend Bay High School. The encounter occurred on Aug. 18 at one of the suspect s homes, authorities said. It was reported to police on Sept. 3 after the victim s mother found a video of it on her son s cellphone. The woman urged the media to share the video widely, and celebrities including leveland native Drew arey offered reward money to catch whoever was involved although authorities said they knew who dumped the bucket on the teen. Duane Deskins, the prosecutor in charge of the juvenile division, said in a statement that the victim and the five suspects were friends who would sometimes engage in distasteful and sophomoric pranks, but added that the fake ice bucket is clearly different. Dean Valore, an attorney who represents the autistic boy and his family, said the teen was scarred by the incident but is doing better thanks to the support he s received. He wants to be a normal kid, Valore said. He wants to fit in and he wants to have friends. Valore said the assault charges have some teeth. It s not a slap on the wrist, he said.

The D says it missed many opportunities to contain Ebola FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) In the days after the first diagnosis of Ebola in the U.S., the head of the enters for Disease ontrol and Prevention was resolute in his confidence about hospitals ability to manage the virus. Essentially any hospital in the country can take care of Ebola. ou don t need a special hospital room to do it, Dr. Tom Frieden said Oct. 2. ou do need a private room with a private bathroom. And most importantly, you need rigorous, meticulous training and materials to make sure that care is done safely so that caregivers aren t at risk. Less than two weeks later, Frieden admitted that the government wasn t aggressive enough in managing Ebola and containing the virus as it spread from an infected patient to a nurse at a Dallas hospital. We could ve sent a more robust hospital infection control team and been more hands-on with the hospital from day one about exactly how this should be managed, he said Tuesday. Frieden outlined new steps designed to stop the spread of the disease, including the creation of an Ebola response team, increased training for health care workers nationwide and changes at the Texas hospital to minimize the risk of more infections. I wish we had put a team like this on the ground the day the patient the first patient was diagnosed. That might have prevented this infection, Frieden said. The stark admission came as the World Health Organization projected the pace of infections accelerating in West Africa to as many as 10,000 new cases a week within two months. In a conference call late Tuesday, the nation s largest nurses union described how the patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, was left in an open area of the emergency room for hours. National Nurses United, citing unnamed nurses, said staff treated Duncan for days without the correct protective gear, that hazardous waste was allowed to pile up to the ceiling and safety protocols constantly changed. RoseAnn Deoro, executive director of Nurses United, refused to say how many nurses made the statement about Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, but insisted they were in a position to know what happened. A total of 76 people at the hospital might have been exposed to Duncan, and all of them are being monitored for fever and other symptoms daily, Frieden said. Nurse Nina Pham contracted the virus while caring for Duncan. Health officials are monitoring 48 others who had some contact with Duncan before he was admitted the hospital where he died Oct. 8. The Associated Press reported onday that Pham was among about 70 hospital staffers who were involved in Duncan s care after he was hospitalized, based on medical records provided by his family. Frieden said some of the world s leading experts on how to treat Ebola and protect health care workers are in the new response team. They will review several issues including how isolation rooms are laid out, what protective equipment health workers use, waste management and decontamination. In Europe, the WHO said the death rate in the outbreak has risen to 70 percent as it has killed nearly 4,500 people, most of them in West Africa. The previous mortality rate was about 50 percent. President Barack Obama, speaking at the end of a meeting with U.S. and allied military leaders, declared that the the world is not doing enough to fight Ebola. Pham, 26, became the first person to contract the disease on U.S. soil as she cared for Duncan. The nurse released a statement Tuesday through Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital saying she was doing well, and the hospital listed her in good condition. She has received a plasma transfusion from a doctor who beat the virus and the hospital EO said medical staff members remain hopeful about her condition. Pham was in Duncan s room often, from the day he was placed in intensive care until the day before he died. I m doing well and want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers, she said. Pham s parents live in Fort Worth, where they are part of a close-knit, deeply religious community of Vietnamese atholics. embers of their church held a special ass for her onday and her sorority sisters at the Texas hristian University held a candlelight vigil for her Tuesday. Pham and other health care workers wore protective gear, including gowns, gloves, masks and face shields and sometimes fullbody suits when caring for Duncan. Health officials have said there was a breach in protocol that led to the infections, but they don t know where the breakdown occurred. Among the changes announced Tuesday by Frieden was a plan to limit the number of health care workers who care for Ebola patients so they can become more familiar and more systematic in how they put on and take off protective equipment, and they can become more comfortable in a healthy way with providing care in the isolation unit.
5 by Joyetter Feagaimaali i-luamanu Samoa News Reporter BILL INTRODUED TO REGULATE corp. SPONSORING ALIENS Both the Senate and the House of Representatives introduced in first reading, an act regulating the ability of corporations to sponsor aliens, amending the current local statute. According to the proposed bill, the current law under ASA is vague and provides minimal direction on the sponsorship of aliens by corporations, and this has led to the sponsorship of aliens by corporations in a manner that is inconsistent with the revised constitution of American Samoa. The territory would benefit from specific language to more effectively control and limit the sponsorship of aliens by corporations. Amendments to the bill are as follows: The proposed legislation says that any corporation authorized by statute to do business in American Samoa, and certified by the Attorney General to sponsor aliens pursuant to the following general requirements: established record of financial responsibility; proof of timely payment of local taxes, fees and other government assessments; in the case of a new corporation, proof of an established business plan for operations in American Samoa; and good corporate citizenship. These general requirements may be expanded or elaborated upon from time to time through the promulgation of regulations by the Attorney General. Revisions would also include that No corporation may sponsor an alien who has any control or interest in the sponsoring corporation. Such persons who are deemed to have control or interest in a corporation shall include but not be limited to alien incorporators, investors, shareholders, directors and officers of any corporation incorporated under the laws of American Samoa. The bill also deletes the part which says Sponsorship of persons may be transferred from one employer to another, provided the board is satisfied of the need and of the lack of permanent residents for such employment. The hearing for this bill is scheduled for today before the House at 8a.m., and Attorney General Talauega Eleasalo Ale is the witness being asked to testify. an UPDATE ON the SEGAULA AIRRAFT The new date for inspection by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the Segaula is now slated for November 17, 2014 says Aleki Sene Jr who spoke on behalf of Inter Island Airways dba anu a Airways Executive President Barney Sene. A hearing was held before the Transportation ommittee last week Friday, and was attended by Port Director Taimalelagi Dr laire Tuia Poumele and Aleki Sene Jr. Earlier this year Barney told the Fono that Segaula and anu a Airways would be up and running by April this year, before Flag Day, however that did not happen. In July, Barney told Samoa News that with all inspections completed the airplane will be up and running in October. During the hearing, anu a faipule Fetu Fetui Jr felt that the anu a people have been lied to and asked the Port Director as to who s lying is it you the Director or Barney. Aleki told the lawmakers that his brother Barney is the President of the Airline however he has been off island and he s scheduled to return next month with the FAA to conduct the inspections. After those inspections, they will know when the Segaula will be up and running. Fetui told Aleki that these were the same things told to the (ontinued on page 14) samoa news, Wednesday, October 15, 2014 Page 5 Alicia eys holds protest for the lost Nigerian girls NEW OR (AP) Alicia eys held a protest in New ork ity on Tuesday to raise awareness about the 200-plus Nigerian schoolgirls who were kidnapped by Boko Haram militants in April. Tuesday marked six months since the girls were abducted. eys kicked off a protest with 30 others at the consulate general of Nigeria, holding signs that read We Are Here and Safe Schools Now! They chanted Bring back our girls and When do we want them? Now! Now! Alive! as New orkers walked up the street during lunch hour, while others stopped to capture photos and video. eys, who is pregnant, said in an interview that she felt touched to take action because she is a mother. Her son, Egypt, turned 4 on Tuesday. Today is my son s birthday and it is also making me stand in solidarity with all the mothers of the hibok girls who have been abducted for six months and are still missing. And it is just outrageous that that s going on, the 33-year-old said as others chanted behind her. eys recently launched the movement We Are Here, which fights for social justice. She also recorded and released a song with the same name. She was joined by her husband, producer-rapper Swizz Beatz. She said people need a reminder that the schoolgirls are still missing. Some people have even told me they ve heard things about there s been progress, but there hasn t been progress because the girls aren t back, eys said. So I think that we get mixed information. We don t know, so we just have to keep being made aware of what s happening. E TALITONU FALEOAVAEGA I LE GALULUE FA ATASI E talitonu atoatoa Faleomavaega i le galulue faatasi.
