Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Dr. Sailele Malielegaoi has declined to confirm if a firm connected to the former Chief Justice, Patu Falefatu Sapolu was amongst those the Government approached to provide an independent view on three bills.

Earlier this week, Tuilaepa confirmed Government’s move to obtain an independent legal opinion on the Constitution Amendment Bill 2020, Land and Titles Court 2020 and Judicature Bill 2020 which are currently before the Legislative Assembly.
