Under Public Law 33-55, the Civil Service Commission will be required to have a hearing on the merits within 120 days.

Guam - At his first hearing since being fired from the Guam Police Department, former Col. Mark Charfauros sought an expedited route to resolve his case.

Charfauros appeared at the Civil Service Commission with his attorney Randy Cunliffe for a status call to go over his appeal. Charfauros was fired from GPD last month following an investigation into his conduct that was seen on body cam footage taken Christmas Eve last year. In the video, Charfauros is seen berating fellow police officers who were responding to a call of illegal fireworks at an Agat residence.

Charfauros has two cases at the civil service, one stems from his demotion to Major and the second is for his termination. GPD Chief of Police J.I. Cruz was also at today’s hearing with his legal counsel, Assistant Attorney General David Rivera.

"We asserted public law 33-55 which means they have to have the hearing within 120 days so that we can get this to the forefront here as soon as possible," explained Cunliffe. "Otherwise it will take two or three years and Mark might like to sit around and wait for two or three years and get all his back pay but I think it’s more important for this issue to be addressed right away and get back to work over there within three or four months."

Charfauros’ next hearing is scheduled for March 23 at 2 pm at the Civil Service Commission.

    As far as the general public is concerned, this issue of over. Mr. Charfauros has been fired for his juvenile behavior on New Year's eve. Serves him right. What a bully!
