Police Security Detail

Former Samoa PM assigned police security detail

The Commissioner confirmed this in an interview with Radio Polynesia today, citing section 5 bracket c of the Police service act 2009 which provides protection for members of the public. 

“It has nothing to do with him being a leader of the opposition party, but the mere fact that Tuilaepa has been threatened. 

Also considered was the incident that occurred last Friday, which led to the decision,” said Auapa’au. 

He said under the law anyone that feels threatened should be given a protective detail while the police assess the threat level.
