The Supreme Court has denied an application by two men, who have been accused of conspiring to assassinate the Prime Minister, to leave the country.

Justice Vui Clarence Nelson, in a four-page decision on Wednesday, ruled that the application by defendants, Lemai Faioso Sione of Nuu and Tuasivi Savai’i and Malele Paulo – better known as King Faipopo, of Vailoa Aleipata and Australia – to leave the jurisdiction lacks merit.
