Samoa Supreme Court Judge

Samoa associate minister not guilty of fraud and forgery

The judge said the prosecution failed to prove the charges.

The associate minister said he will follow up with the police on his complaint against the directors of the nonu juice company which had filed the criminal case against him.

Peseta has also filed a civil lawsuit against the directors and a government minister who is a supporter of the company.

Peseta's lawyer, Leuluaialii Olinda Woodroffe, said she is delighted with the outcome.
