Minister for Justice

AG says Samoa’s Minister of Justice arrest warrant still valid

However, he told Samoa News the AG’s office does not play a role in the execution of the arrest warrant. The warrant in Ainu’u’s name is on allegations that he was paid by a client for court representation however the accused failed to appear in court.

The arrest warrant in question, was issued by the Attorney General’s office back in 2008 when Fepulea’i Arthur Ripley was AG. Last month Ainu’u was sworn in to Samoa’s Parliament as a cabinet member and is the new Minister for the Ministry of Justice and Courts Administration.
