Minister of Tourism Amituanai Kenrick Samu

Associate minister in Samoa charged with threatening behaviour

The Samoa Observer reports Police Commissioner Fuiavailili Egon Keil has confirmed the charges against the associate minister.

Amituana'i, MP for Aleipata Itu I Luga, has been granted bail and is scheduled to appear in the District Court on 19 August.

The charges stem from an incident in Lalomanu over a land dispute.

A relative of the complainant said the associate minister swore and swung a hammer at the victim.
