The Government of Samoa is standing by its decision to deny hospital care to an injured fisherman, a week after he first asked for treatment for his seriously wounded hand.

On Thursday evening, the Government Press Secretariat stated that it considers the man’s injury to be “minor” and therefore the vessel was and will continue to be denied entry into Samoa.
