Former Football Federation officials in Court

Two former Football Federation Samoa (F.F.S.) officials appeared in the Supreme Court on Monday. 

Former F.F.S. President, Reverend Laupama Tokan Solomona, was represented by lawyer, Alex Su’a, while former Chief Executive Officer, Faumuina Michael Kapisi had Te'o Richard Fa'aiuaso acting on his behalf. 

The Assistant Attorney General and prosecutor was Magele Leone Su’a. 

Acting Chief Justice, His Honour Vui Clarence Nelson presided. 

Magele asked the Court for an adjournment to allow the prosecution to finalise charges against the defendants. 

Justice Vui granted a two weeks adjournment. 

The defendants are remanded on bail and are to appear again in Court on 24th June 2019.

The charges against the pair stemmed from an investigation carried out by the Police into “internal issues” at the F.F.S.
