A senior employee of the Samoa Commercial Bank (S.C.B) will appear before the Supreme Court on 22 August 2016. 

The 35-year-old female, who had been working at the bank for a long time, faces charges of theft.

The charge was confirmed by Police Media Officer, Su’a Muliaga Tiumalu.

He said the Bank had referred the matter to Police on 1 August 2016 for an investigation.  

The alleged offending was carried out within one month, where $125,000 went missing.

The accused employee is on bail and has been asked to sign in at the Criminal Investigation Division [C.I.D] every Friday. 

Suicide case

A 17-year-old male from a village in Savaii died last week from the latest case of suicide.

Su’a said the matter was reported to the Tuasivi Police Post at around 12am on 7 August 2016. The body of the deceased is at the Tuasivi Morgue awaiting a post mortem.
