Samoan jail death

Family of NZer who died in Samoan jail want to meet with Samoa's Attorney-General

Lemalu Hermann Retzlaff was expected to visit last month but the trip was called off in light of Samoa's deadly measles epidemic.

It has meant Hans Dalton's family will continue to wait for a meeting with the Samoan government over the 38-year-old's death.

Boxing Day this year marks seven years since Mr Dalton's body was found half-submerged in a water drum in Samoa's Tafa'igata Prison.

For many whānau around the country, Christmas is a time of joy and peace where people gather to share kai and koha.
