Rowina Torres's Colorado business

By Troy Torres

(Tumon, Guam) Gov. Ralph Torres's sister-in-law, Rowina O. Torres, opened a company in Colorado three days after the late Gov. Eloy Inos signed the casino statute into law.

According to information from the Colorado Department of State, Rufina, LLC started its business at 5881 West 109th Ave., Westminster, Colorado on October 10, 2013; Chinese 10-10 Day, ironically.

Ms. Torres is married to the governor's eldest brother, Vincent, dubbed 'Don Torrleone' by the Kandit family. She owns Rufina Tropicals, LLC and Bibang's Cafe right outside the Saipan International Airport. She opened these companies in 2015, two years after the Colorado business.

Not much is known about this company, or why Ms. Torres started it in Colorado. A search of the real estate shows that the address is to a home in a residential neighborhood in Westminster, Colorado. The property was listed for rent on August 7, 2013, and rented on August 10, 2013.

According to federal records, the raids and warrants upon Gov. Torres, his wife, his brothers, and all but one of their wives were in pursuit of information dating back to September 1, 2013.

The Colorado Department of State, as of today, lists the business as delinquent. As a matter of fact, according to property records, the address listed as its place of business was listed for rent just one year after the business started and has gone through a series of transactions leading to foreclosure just this year.

If it is this easy for Kandit News to uncover all of the illegal and shady activity of the CNMI GOP political hierarchy, imagine how much dirt the FBI and US Attorney have from their search & seizure.

How did it take this long for all of this garbage to come to light? Simple Open Government Act requests for documents (which is free to do) would have uncovered all of the frivilous and illegal spending Gov Torres has been doing since entering politics. If only the local papers in Saipan actually did any reporting. Shame on the poorly run rags that call themselves newspapers in the CNMI and thank you Kandit News for uncovering and reporting on the TRUTH for…


What's it all about Ralphie?

What's it all about, R-Alfie? Is it just for the moment we live? What's it all about when you sort it out, R-Alfie? Are we meant to take more than we give Or are we meant to be kind?

And if only fools are kind, R-Alfie Then I guess it's wise to be cruel And if life belongs only to the strong, R-Alfie What will you lend on an old golden rule? As sure as I believe there's a heaven above, R-Alfie I know there's something much more Something even non-believers can believe in

I believe in love, R-Alfie Without true love we just exist, R-Alfie Until you find the love you've missed you're nothing, R-Alfie
