Attorney General, Lemalu Hermann Retzlaff, believes the District Court’s decision to jail King Faipopo for a Facebook post defaming Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Dr. Sa’ilele Malielegaoi, should be a lesson for all social media users.

In an email to the Samoa Observer after Judge Alalatoa Rosella Papali’i delivered the sentence on Friday, Lemalu said the decision sends a clear "message" to online users about the content of their posts.
