Samoa PM calls parliament media filming ban 'stupid'

Talamua Media reported a press release, from the Office of the Clerk, informed media all video and still cameras are prohibited inside the new Maota Fono during parliament sessions.

The new arrangement comes after the new parliament building was opened last week.

Tuilaepa told Talamua he was not aware of the ban, saying he would have stopped the notice if he'd known.

He expressed surprise at not seeing any journalists in parliament.
