A  man fighting extradition to Samoa for his alleged role in a plot to assassinate the Prime Minister had an application to be released from jail dismissed by an Australian court on Friday. 

Talalelei Pauga, a resident of Brisbane, Australia, was first arrested by Police in late August on the request of Samoan authorities. On Friday a motion to secure his release from prison was denied by a Judge in the Supreme Court of Queensland.
