Samoa's annual audits of government spending are not up to date. They have not yet been released. If they are released for the last sitting of parliament, they may not even be discussed. 

This will be the 2nd release of an OPC report in 12 years. The OPC Reports are annual and not to be released every few years. 

Unbridled, unrestrained corruption continues despite Fuimaono Camillo Afele nor has he released an audit of Samoa's S.I.F.A. Tax Haven, which although a public agency is not taxed.

Economists have concluded that a tax haven doubles the GDP of a nation. Well that is a lot of money disappearing into the pockets of a corrupt few - at least a billion annually.

The proven corruption is well documented and there will be a reckoning one day.
