Samoa Prime Minister

Samoa PM calls out unethical professionals

The call from the Prime Minister Tuilaepa Dr. Sailele Malielegaoi was issued initially last Friday to the Samoa Law Society during his remarks to commemorate the first ten years since the Samoa Law Reform Commission was established.

But this week in his weekly television Current Affairs Program, Taimi ma le Palemia, hosted by TV Samoa Tuilaepa reiterated that call but extended his public challenge to other professions noting that it is a moral question and a test for the professionals to practice their respective code of ethics to the letter.

Samoa’s PM responds to public criticisms after interview with 60 Minutes

The Prime Minister was questioned about security and prison services in Samoa in light of the case where an Australian tourist was raped by a prison escapee last year.

Social media has been flooded with comments of the PM being unprofessional in his responses.

PM Tuilaepa says he agreed to the interview with 60 minutes as part of his duties, as a leader.

“A leader who does not face problems head on, is no leader at all. It’s easy to just ignore and not say anything, but you can’t just take the good and ignore the bad,” he said in a media conference.
