Record Bills

Samoa MPs question records bill

The bill would give the minister, who is currently Tialavea Tionisio Hunt, access to any information, records or documents related to customs or tax matters.

The Samoa Observer reported several MPs criticising the bill's ambiguous definition of personal information.

They also raised concerns about privacy and unfettered power.

MP Fuimaono Teo Samuelu said the minister could already access the information through official channels.
