The Samoa Ports Authority is suing the Aggie Grey’s Beach Resort Samoa Limited and the Hotel over a historical debt of less than $50,000.

Chief Justice, His Honour, Patu Tiava’asue Falefatu Sapolu presided over the civil matter in the Supreme Court on Monday. 

Lawyer Komisi Koria represented S.P.A. while Ryan Masinalupe was the lawyer for Aggie Grey’s Beach Resort Samoa Limited. 

Mr. Masinalupe told the Court that he is only representing the first defendant, Aggie Grey’s Beach Resort Limited. 

Chief Justice Patu then adjourned the matter to February 25 for the first defendant to file and serve a statement of defense. 

He also ordered the first defendant’s counsel to consult with the second defendant if he will also represent them in Court. 

Outside Court, Mr. Koria was asked about the debt and whether it was under the current or previous management of Aggies.

In response, he said it does not matter which management it is under the entity goes back to Aggies. 

He declined to comment further on the case.
