Grieving mother laments postmortem delay
A grieving mother who has waited for a year to bury her deceased 16-year-old son has spoken of her heartache, as uncertainty over the availability of a forensic pathologist to do postmortem on bodies at the national hospital’s mortuary continues.
Solotaga Viliamu died on 29 February last year with his suspected to be the result of an alleged assault by a church minister. Close to a year later, Solotaga's mother Vagalena Viliamu of Safotu Savai’i said the pain is still fresh, knowing that the eldest of her twin sons is yet to be laid to rest.
