Samoa’s police await report on its officers in South Sudan

Reports of heavy fighting between opposing army factions in the northeastern African country have created unease amongst families of police officers back home in Samoa.

Police Spokesperson, Inspector Maotaoalii Kaioneta Aliisolia, who also previously served with the mission in Sudan, says their technology is more advanced than that of Samoa, so if anything had happened to their officers there would have been contact made.

“We have not received any word from the UN yet and we are still waiting for a report from our officers,” he said.
