Pacific lawyers' court interference warning
Multiple Pacific legal associations have made their opposition known to the proposed changes to Samoa's judiciary and the Land and Titles Court (L.T.C.).
The South Pacific Lawyers' Association (S.P.L.A.), LAWASIA and the Commonwealth Lawyers Association (C.L.A.) have now condemned three bills before Parliament aiming to drastically change Samoa's judicial system and create an independent L.T.C. as a "grave threat" to judicial independence.
