Child abuse, neglect cases increase 8% By Ferdinand de la Torre REPORTED cases of child abuse and neglect had increased by 8 percent in 996 compared from previous year, according to the Division of Youth Services. The increase rate from 99 cases of child abuse or child neglect to 995 was about 8%, the DYS indicated in its 996 annual report. The report showed that in 996, 56children were brought for services at DYS Child Protective Unit because of abuse or neglect, with ages ranging from newborn to under 8 years old. Year 996, the annual report said, saw the highest number of cases the division has ever experienced in over a decade of its operation. The report cited as the highest form of maltreatment, physical neglect (a parent's or caretaker's failure or negligence in providing for his or her child's wellbeing supervision such as hygiene, food, clothing, medical care, and education). Of the 56 children, the report showed that 5 of them were reported for physical neglect and 6 for physical abuse. Sexual abuse of children under 6 years old involved 6 cases, while emotional abuse comprised of kids, the 996 annual report indicated. The Child Protective Unit receives and investigates reports of child sexual abuse, child physical neglect, child physical abuse, and child emotional abuse.

Castro's offer came after Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori made a swprise visit to Cuba, seeking Castro's help in ending the hostage crisis, in which rebels have been holding 7 top Peruvian officials since December. 'This is a moral duty, not a position taken merely for advantages," Castro toldreponersafterseeingofffujimori. who returned to Lima late Monday. Earlier, after a red-carpet welcome that underlined how rarely heads of state visit Cuba and his talks with Castro, Fujimori said Castro had expressed a willingness to accept the n::bels if asked to do so. Fuj irnori did not say whether such a request was made. "The discussion was fruitful," Fujimori said, adding that the Cuban leadershowed "good will" during three s of talks. "Cuba is willing to cooperate... but not to participate as a mediator." Fujimori said the two "discussed some points that can't disclose" because discussions on the hostage situation "must be discreet" While his comments appeared to open a door to a possible solution, it was not clear if the Tupac Amaru l " '- :""""".,; ;...,.,..q Fidel Castro rebels demanding freedom for jailed colleagues would agree to go to Cuba.

Saddam sues French mag for defamation / PARS (AP)- Saddam Hussein \ has sued a French magazine for \ defamation forcallingthelraqi presi! dent an "executioner" and a "monster," among other things. The September article in Le Nouvel Observateur, 'The Unbearable Likeness of an Executioner," also called Saddam a "perfect cretin," and ''nurderer." At ahearingmonday, the defense argued that the court should throw outthecase.lawyersylviecouturon said the raqi strongman was wrung in filing the defamation suir as if he were a conmmn citizen. Martine Valdes-Boulouque, the government's assistant prosecutor, agreed, saying it should be filed as "an offense against a foreign head of state." But Saddam's lawyer, Pauick Brunot, argued his client could only file as a common citizen and not as a head of state, because Paris and Baghdad cut diplomatic relations in February 99, during the Gulf War. Judge Martine Ract-Madoux took the motion under advisement and planned to announce April whether the uial may proceed.

There was no indication whether the government's main negotiator, Education Minister Domingo Palermo, had been in contact with Fujimori since his meeting with Castro. Canadian Ambassador Athony Vincent, one of the mediators of the talks, said said both sides were "completing their proposals which.. will clearly establish their positions."

Korean prime.minister... '. '. ; SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - President Kim Young-sam named on Tuesday a former Seoul mayor as prime minister, part of a government shakeup after a major bribery scandal. Koh Kun, 59, was expected to be approved to the largely ceremonial post by the National Assembly later Tuesday. The one-house Parliament is controlled by the ruling party. Koh' s appointment would be followed by a shakeup of the Cabinet, possibly Wednesday, ruling party officials Kim already has reshuffled his secretarial staff, naming a former home minister as his new chief of staff. Local newspapers, quoting various government sources, said the expected Cabinet shakeup would affect seven or eight posts, mostly in economic and social affairs ministries. The foreign and security-related ministers would be retained, they reported. n a nationally televised speech last week, Kim apologized for the bribery scandal, in which some of his key aides were involved, and promised to restore his government's credibility. Koh, now a university president, has headed the home, transportation and agriculture ministries under past governments. His appointment was not expected to bring any majorchanges in government policies. Economic recovery is the most pressing task Kim's government faces. South Korea posted a record $.7 billion current-account deficit last year.

Tenorio has already revealed the name of his running mate-but only to the Democratic Party leadership. Party chair Daniel. Quitugua yesterday said that Tenorio made the announcement Friday during an unofficial meeting with members of the central executive committee. "He told us the name of the person he is interested to run with, and the committee members find that person acceptable," Quitugua The governor, he added, told them that the running mate has likewise "expressed willingness." However, Quitugua said that the governor and the committee members decided not to announce the name of the running mate until April 5, when the party holds its first fundraising event. Asked if there is any reason for keeping the name "secret," Quitugua said "There is none, but there's no urgency to announce it either."

3 WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5, MARANAS VARETY NEWS AND VEWS-5 Talks with RP hospital execs sought They taught us how to plant flower gardens Now they are back to plow them under... By: John S. DelRosario, Jr. e NM was born a healthy group of islands. Her people have withstood the flight of fancy of every conqueror. She was taught American Democracy and the free enterprise system. She rolled, stumbled, picked herself up and regrouped from the ashes of histo)' and discriminatory wage system, the brainchild of the US Departmem of nterior. t was dollar-plus for US citizens (statesiders), $. an for Micronesians and less than $. an for all others, including Filipinos. lnteriorgave us a pay scale to supplant our traditional lifestyles. t kept the largest share of the pie for statesiders, little crumbs for the brown boys and girls to keep their interest alive. Perhaps this was the ultimate schemebuild a sense of helplessness-under the guise of striving for the American Dream, a dream most mainlanders across the country have yet to attain even as we approach the st Century. We established our constitutional government some nearly thirty years ago with all the guarantees and trappings of self-government. Nowhere was Uncle Sam to be found in the initial stages of constitutional government to ensure a good beginning. Despite this drawback, we rolled-up our sleeves and.ot on with the task at hand. All throughout the period we've heard taller than-abraham Lincoln speeches from the other side of the Pacific about selfsufficiency. We severed the umbilical cord in 99 which demonstrates that we have attained a level of economic activity to support at least the operations end of our government. Recently, we've been hearing adifferentdrum beat. The beat says we must now move aside despite all that we've learned in tbe refinement of our democratic institutions. American Democracy is now telling us-through mediocre intermediaries-that we must once again prepare to advance to the rear. Some of our self-anointed great white fathers are saying that however the lessons they've taught us on how lo plant beautiful and productive flower gardens, they (US via nterior's Allen Stayman) is prepared to plow under all that American investment of more than $ Billion. What's amazing though in his hidden aoenda is the obvious warped view that the brown boys - c must again move aside so big white brother can clean up the mess. Doesn't Stayman have any respect for the democratic process out here? Specifically, doesn't he respect our inalienable rights to self-government? Where was this evil genius during the incipiency of the NMGovemment? We were left to fend for ourselves. Therefore, elementary logic dictates, Lord Stayman that our mother country was as much as fault in some of the more substantive mess that subsequently came under microscopic review by the US Congress. n short, our mother country was equally at fault for fostering a d-ysfunctional family that now enjoys some measure of stability-hard earned socio-economic stability. Have you forgotten Lord Stay man that the people whose economic future you 're trying to ruin may not be mainstream Americans. but US Citizens too? ndeed, the NM! made it on its own albeit all the difficult problems that arc part of growth and Jcvclopment. But we've learned some invaluable though painful lessons in the refinement of our democratic institutions. The problems with immigration and labor are all part of the exercise of self-government. f in fact we haven't lift a finger to resolve them, then your hidden agenda may have some credibility. At least we don't club Mexicans nor African Americans. But it is too obvious why the islands and our people must endure constant threat from your side of the Pacific. For instance, 've learned that you being a prounion it is only too apparent why the clandestine or collusive tactics to push for the establishment of the union here. Arc you.cognizant that a unionized Marianas labor pool would spell the ultimate death of every industry here? 've carefully treaded the activities of some people here from labor union air heads. reporters and human rights advocates. Please try to convince this scribe tlat there isn't a hidden agenda to rnin and permanently taint the reputation of these islands and its indigenous people. question why the federal government intervention in the rn,;cof a Filipino advocate of unionizing laborers here. mean this is the only foreigner whose trnvel to Guam and other US jurisdiction receives federal intervention. Then there's the cmc of an underage Filipina who used to strip at a bar who now receives a scholarship to go to school at a US jurisdiction. Tell this scribe that it is just a coincidence. t's too good to be true, right? Whether by design or accident, the NMl experienced phenomenal economic growth far greater than most pacific island nations. Of course, understand what the Covenant Agreement says with respect to our political relationship. There's no provision that says we must genuflect to the whims of another level of government nterior's Officeoflnsular Affairs. But then LordStaymanhad to engage in mindless and bmtal schemes at our expense to justify his existence. t is a useless office given that most tenitories now elect their own representative government. Why then doesn't the US Congress abolish this office? s it fair for mainland US taxpayer. to be paying for mediocrity that only benefits the career of an evil genius? Thanks for all your evil plans and bent determination to plow our flower gardens forgetting that you and your predecessors have taught us why and how to plant them fifty yean; ago. No sir, we will not succumb to total reliance once more on federal largesse or dependency. JACK ANDERSON and JAN MOLLER HELlO,?RESOENT CLNTON?... :r SURRENt>E"R!... T/>,\<: i'r\e t,\ 6.6..G\< ANO!LL G;lVE up commun\sm! WASHNGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Nauru a paradise for scamming banks NAURU-This remote island nation in the western Pacific. until recently qne richest countries in the Third World, is desperately trying to revitalize its reeling economy. But don't bank on Nauru s return to prosperity. At one point. the average annual per capita income of Nauru ans was more than $.. But that figure has been cut in half in recent years because of a dramatic decrease in Nauru's sole export-centuries' accumulation of bird droppings. A century ago, a New Zealand chemist discovered that the tiny island's bird population had produced some of the highest-grade phosphate ever found. When combined with sulfur, the ancient droppings transformed into superphosphate-just the ticket to make Australia's and New Zealand's phosphatedeficient farms flourish. Nauru, the smallest republic in the world, has exported millions of tons of the material. But they always knew the day would come when the reserve would run out. That dreaded day is now only a few years away. After a decade of contemplation. the Nauruans thought they had the perfect antidote to stave off a fiscal crisis-turn the island nation into an offshore banking center. Visions of dancing mini-bahamas filled islanders' heads. But as our associate Dale Yan Atta discovered in a recent visit to the island, the country s Australian-dollar based economy ran out of cash last year. Apparently the Nauru ans weren't able lo break the high-living habits formed when the phosphate and the money was plentiful. And now the islanders are paying a terrible price. Nauru's minister of finance has admitted to fellow citizens that the financial situation of the government is "extremely grave." n fact, the Bank of Nauru-the country's only bank-is in a desperate state. "No dividends are expected from the Bank of Nauru," a high government source told us. "The bank is in a serious state of insolvency. The government is examining every option in an attempt to resurrect the bank." That's not exactly the kind of fiscal responsibility that should inspire American-based banks to register in Na,ru. But U.S. Treasury officials have investigated at least suspicious banks that registered in Nauru by mail and are operating in the United States. These banks have taken advantage of recent easy-incorporation, notax laws passed here. Other laws on the books in Nauru ensure that a banks business here wi be kept a strict secret. Americans often assume that a bank is safe if it is located in the town or city in which they reside. But if the bank is registered to a foreign country, particularly a smaller one. there's reason for concern. Certainly there arc legitimate foreign-registered banks. But protection offered by secrecy laws in countries like Nauru seem to attract fly-by-night operators who can register a bank by mail, take depositors' money, and run. When government investigator John Shock<:!y contacted Nauru an officials for some assistance in exposing these questionable banks, he was told they could offer no help. The officials said secrecy laws prevented them not only from giving Shockey information about specific banks. but even from revealing the number of banks registered here that are opera! ing in the United States. Shockey and others are angry about what he calls ' prostitute banking. Sadly. the victims are often elderly individuals fraudulently lured into placing their money in the hands of these shady bankers. n the last several years. Shockey's office has issued more than 6 alerts about questionable banks registered in Nauru and elsewhere. Other favored nations for con artists looking to register bogus banking operations are the South Pacific island nations of Vanuatu and Western Samoa. the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, and the Caribbean nations of Antigua and Barbados. nvestigators have found that a few of these island locations will only charter a bank for international-not domestic-business. This clever practice protects the locals from the unseemly bankers while allowing them to fleece foreigners at will. lsamu J. Abraham By Jojo Dass VafletyNewr.

"We will start this first phase (talks) with the Republic of the Philippines. As we gain more experience and ability to manage this program, we will expand to include China, Korea, Bangladesh, Japan, and other Pacific sland countries," Abraham added. DONATON.

Ana S. Teregeyo said yesterday. Teregeyo and Rep. Manuel - March 9, A. Tenorio co-chair the planning committee for the fourda/summit to be held on Rota starting Monday, March. Teregeyo, in an interview yesterday, said other topics for discussion include fisheries, marine resources, tourism, labor and immigration and agriculture... Aside from the impact (of Micronesian immigration) and drug abuse, we're also concerned with reciprocity amongst.the jurisdictions in terms of immigration, commerce and trade," she The federal Office of nsular Affairs (OA) was' also asked to send representatives to the summit, but Teregeyo said that they have yet to hear from OA. Ana S. Teregeyo sland leaders from the CNM, Guam, the Federated States of Micronesia, Palau, the Marshall slands and Nauru have already confirmed their participation. Broadhurst tells Cing: Teregeyo said the number of delegates to the summit is estimated to from to 5. "t's going to be a very important summit, and Rota and the CNM will benefit from this," she The planning and organizing committees, in coordination with the Office of the Rota Mayor, have been working hard to ensure the success of the conference, Teregeyo added. Aside from Tenorio and Teregeyo, Sens.JuanP. Tenorio, Eusebio Hocog and Ricardo S. Atalig and Rep. Vicente M. Atalig are also in the planning committee. Acting Gov. Jesus C. Borja, Senate President Jesus R. Sablan and Speaker Diego T. Benavente will head the CNM delegation. 'Talk issues not hot air' David M. Ging By 7..aldy Dandan THE GOVERNOR'S spokesperson yesterday said that instead of -----~-----~ GET THE BEST DEALS ON THE BEST TRUCKS N TOWN WHLE SUPPLES LAST! repeatedly"blasting" Gov. Fro ii an C. Tenorio, Sen. David M. Cing should talk about the things he has done for Tinian. "He should talk about issues and not just hot air," Mark Broadhurst "But maybe he's not doing anything for Tinian," he added, "and that's why he has nothing to say about those things." Cing on Monday said that fellow Democrat Tenorio will finish last in the forthcoming gubernatorial election, and that the senator himself will "see to it" that his partymate loses "big time" on Tinian. 'The governor might be flattered that (Cing) is embarking on a huge effort just to ensure his (Tenorio's) defeat," Broadhurst "But we've more faith on Tinian than Cing has." The people of Tinian, he said, knows "how far the governor has gone for them: and not just the casino but socio-economic opportunities as well." Tinian, he added, is now a "place of progress and hope" mainly thro!lgh the governor's efforts. Cing should switch parties, Broadhurst said, and stop being a Democratic senator "who sounds like a spokesperson'' for the Republican Party. A self-declared staunch supporter of the Republican gubernatorial candidate, former governor Pedro P. Tenorio, Cing has Mark Broadhurst earlier urged his partymates to abandon incumbent Governor Tenorio "for the CNM's sake." Meanwhile, the Democratic Party chair said there will be no sanctions against the maverick senator. Daniel. Quitugua yesterday said that Cing has yet to violate any party regulations. "We can ask him to tone down his remarks against the governor (who is the party's titular head), but that's as far as we can go," he There is nothing on the party bylaws, Quitugua added, that could be cited against Cing. He said the party does not penalize members for exercising heir constitutional right to free speech. However, if Cing is a "true Democrat," he should be urging support for the party's gubernatorial candidate, Quitugua DEQ water report THE DVSON of Environmental Qua! ity (DEQ) yes ten.lay announced that water sanples collected from some of Saipan 'srecreational beaches and strnm water damages contained excessive concentration of fecal colifom bacteria exceeding CNM Maiine Water Quality Standaitls ne sites we <S follows Smiling Cove M,uina; Dai-chi Dminage; Hafa-Adai Drainage; Sug:u Dock; :md Sall Antonio Lift Station High concentration of Fecal.

The latter on the other hand, countered that at least two parties have actually been coming forward to claim the exchange Jeal. The lot, measuring close to 6, sq. m. and spanning the area from the Mobil gas station to the Waterloo pump, supposedly ~e!ongs to the family of Community and Cultural Affairs Secretary Thomas Tebuteb and has, according to him, been "a family land for generations." t has been appropriated for public utilities. A member of the Tebuteb clan, said Acting Public Works Secretary Martin Manglona in an earlier interview, has been stopping workmen from pushing through with the road project. This, Manglona said, may delay the slated completion of the expansion work on March. Tebuteb said the clan should not be blamed if their bid to stop the work.until a land exchange Brownout hits Garapan, Capitol Hill,. _. Kagman, Kobler. By Rick Alberto BROWNOUTS, which extended for s, hit the Garapan, Capitol Hill, Kagman, and Koblerville areas yesterday. Pamela A. Mathis, public information officer of the Commonwealth Utilities Corp., said the brownouts were caused by routine engine maintenance and an engine malfunction. Power in Garapan was cut from a.m. to p.m.; Capitol -ill and Kagman from p.m. lo 5 p.m.; and a big part of Koblerville from 5 p.m. to 8: p.m. Mathis said Engine 7 underwenta routine maintenance, while Engine 5 suffered from a malfunction in it, auxiliary system. Engine 7 was put back to full operation by 5 p.m., Mathis On the other hand, Engine 5 was anticipated lo be operational again at 9 last night. The CUC asked people over the rauio to conservt: power bcl'orc the cngim:s wen: put back into operation as anticipatcu. The last time s-long brownouts occurrccj Saipan was on Dec.. The CUC also put into effect island-wide rotated outages lasting one and one-half months from Oct. 8 to Dec. last year because of engine breakdowns resulting from malfunctioning defccti ve parts. Thomas Tebuteb deal has been forged causes a delay on the project's progress. "We're worried that we might be left out in the cold... don't think its fair to blame us for the delay," he "The DPL is sitting on the matter. We've hacj our Determination of Ownership since 958. Government has vowed to look into the matter... and it has been seven years. "We've been dealing with government in good faith. And we're still waiting for them to tell us what's going on," Tebuteb lamented. He said a parcel of land in the Mt. Tapotchao area has been appropriated for the replacement. But this has yet to be formally turned over to the clan. "We want the DPL to let us know how we can work out a deal to have the land exchange," Tebuteb But DPL Directress Bertha Camacho said her office is filing for a "friendly condemnation" of the matter before the court to resolve the problem on what she said is a case of an "unclear title." Bertha Camacho "We need to know who the legal owners are before we can finally close the exchange agreement... we need a clear title before we can proceed," she explained. Camacho said the land was originally owned by a certain Maria Mangabao who has died several years ago. She said that while Rey Tebuteb, Thomas' brother, has been acting as the clan's "administrator," a copy certifying him as the clan's official representative in the land exchange deal has remained unsigned by a number of relatives who supposedly are also heirs to the land. Worse, at least one relative, she said, has come forward allegedly objecting to Tebuteb' s representation. "We' re leaving the matter for the court to decide," Camacho The Tebutebclan, as stipulated in an "Agreement to Exchange" transaction reached with the DPL. is duty-bound not to interfere with the on-going road project.

Munar Vanety News Staff FOR HS -year-old boy, getting a new wheelchair is probably better late than never. The Public School System has promisedthatbobby(realnamewithheld upon request) will finally get a new one. Yesterday, Barbara Rudy. director of Pss: Special Education Program, infonnedthenorthernmarianasprotection and Advocacy Systems, nc., that her office will soon process the order for a new chair. "When a situation such as this can be resolved without going to court, it's always better for everybody involved," NMPAS's legal counsel William C. Campbell Bobby,astudentofHopwoodJunior High suffering from cerebral palsy, has been using a two-yearold rusty wheelchair which suffers from more "disabilities"than he does. t has an ill-fitting seat, a wornout truck support, and armrest peeling off. ts backrest is peeling loose, causing Bobby's head to fall off. The upper part of the chair has only an elastic band to support the boy's back. The unsafe condition of the chair can cause Bobby more injuries, according to specialists. Lite last year, NMPAS, a federally funded agency, came to Bobby's rescue, and requested PSS to address Bobby s condition. Although made in May la~t year, the request had to go through a long bureaucratic maze. "Even though (the boy's mother) has been very conciliatory and patient in allowed SPED to attempt to repair the chair with parts, the remediation has been in dismal failure,"campbell saidinfeb. loaletter to Rudy. Campbell then warned Rudy that thie, "faulty" wheelchair could, as it happened in the past, result in "a paraplegic becoming aquadriplegic.'' n asimilar case Campbell handled in Florida, the responsible party paid over a million dollar.; in damages. The NMP AS!' slawyerwamed Rudy of a possible liability PSS might face "if such were to happen to my client." On Feb., 997, the Marianas Mobile Therapists came up with a wheelchair assessment report which was endorsed by the Sunrise Rehab Service. Excepts: "(Bobby) has a very strong extensor tone which from experience as a service provider could cause strong torsion on the different wheelchair component..agg:ravated by lack of posturalstabilityprovidedby present positioning system, (Bobby) posturing will not accomodate a - year-old wheelchairorvice versa.

Teregeyo, defendants Long Beach Corp. and Kim Chong Kyun were also asked to pay an additional $6 in cost of action and attorney's fee. Teregeyo said the court finds Local bill not against mayor By Zaldy Dandan SENATOR David M. Cing said Monday that there is "nothing personal" with a local bill that would limit the Tinian mayor's power to appoint municipal boards and commissions. "As far as know, this bill is not directed against (Tinian Mayor Herman M. Manglona [R])," said Cing (D-Tinian). "t's a good bill." He said Tinian' s elected leaders usually have different approaches to a problem, but "all of us want a solution." Asked if the bill, which states that current law on appointments is "inadequate to discourage favoritism, nepotism and other abuses of appointment authority," is a thinly veiled criticism of Manglona, Cing said, "Not necessarily so." He said giving Tinian's Municipal Council a say in the appointments being made by the mayor is not something new. "Even the governor's appointments have to be confinned first by the Senate," Cing Cing chairs the Senate Committee on Executive Appointments and Government nvestigation ntroduced by Rep. Joaquin G.

More than days have elapsed since the defendants were served with summons, the order stated.. The Department of Labor and mmigration (DOL) asked the Superior Court to enforce its administrative order requiring defendants to pay their employees for overtime wages, illegal deductions and liquidated damages. The DOL found Long Beach and Kyun with co-defendants Felipe Garcia and Antonio Reyes liable to the complaints of their employees Annabelle Abrera, Laila G. Culala, Malia Fe Tobias, and Josephine G. Laurente. The complainants are non-resident workers who were employed at the defendants' nightclub. The women began work last Dec., the DOLi said in the petition.

Saipan, nc., has applied for a permit from the Coastal Resources Management. Called ronwood Family Golf Center, the project aims to "enhance Saipan's image as a first class tourist destination while providing a facility that local residents can enjoy," according to the Environmental mpact Assessment prepared by EFC Engi~ neers & Architects. The EA noted that while a few commercial driving ranges had been developed on Saipan including in its various golf resor~s, "none of the drivi,ng ranges have the extent of facilities or prime location that t~e proposed ronwood Family Golf Center will have." The proposed golf center would be located along Chalan Monsignor Guerrero Road between ke's Market and the entrance road to the CMS Quarry. uthis area could be considered the premierlo.cation for this type of facility given that it is centrally located between three of the major golf resorts on the island (Coral Ocean Point, Laolao Bay, and Kingfisher). The facility, according to the proposal, will have a two,tired driving range with low-level ground lighting for nighttime operation, practice putting green, chipping green, ninehole par three golf course, l 8- hole putt-putt course, and clubhouse/snack bar. t will accommodate about 5 golfers. The project will be both family- and individual-oriented, "with serious players able to practice and get lessons at the driving range, putting green and chipping green, and families. able to enjoy the atmosphere of the par three course," the EA.. t said the facility will have extensive landscaping with fropical vegetation and manmade reflective pools connected by a meandering stream."

The pawnshop owner, according to the bill, may be held liable for acts of misdemeanor if he or she: * removed, altered, or obliterated any manufacturer's make, model or serial number, and other identification of the item; * knowingly received any item from persons below 8 years of age;and * made any false entry or misstatement regarding the pawned item.
