It goes both ways

Dear Editor

Re: Deporting criminals 

It goes both ways. Samoans in jail in other countries will be sent back to Samoa for Samoa to look after. 

What are the numbers of Samoans in jail in other countries? 

Are you able to hold them all? 

How many foreigners are currently in jail in Samoa compared to how many Samoans in jail overseas? 

Sure you want to let foreigners know the cost of breaking the law but you also want to show the world that Samoa is a country that shows compassion not arrogance.
