'The guns are my son's' says Samoan minister

The chairman of the FAST party and Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries, Laauli Leuatea Schmidt, told the Samoa Observer the consignment belonged to his son Leuatea James Schmidt who holds a valid dealer's licence.

He says he handed the business and licence to his son.

He also says the importation of such a consignment under his son's name was done "legally".
