What is Misa afraid of?

03 July 2016

Dear Editor,

Talofa lava. Faatulou atu fo’i i le silafaga tupu a Sāmoa i le Sāmoa Observer.

I refer to the article “Ex-Vice President of the Land and Titles Court defends Judges” Afioga Misa Anae P. Anae.

I think Misa Anae does not want the Judges scrutinized by the Commission of Inquiry because he is afraid their failure might be exposed. I am one of those deeply affected by these power hungry decisions.

When the hearing started and after the “fa’atū aao/fa’atū lima” a Judge immediately announced that our petition ua fa’alēaogāina and ended the hearing. The decision has been appealed and awaiting mention.

E lagona e tino matagi otherwise, there would not be an appeal.

O le fa’ai’uga lea e lē tusa ai ma le Vaega 63 (2) o le Tulafono o Fanua ma Suafa 1981–“(2) In arriving at the final decision every Samoan Judge and Assessor hearing the petition shall have an equal voice”

E le’i fofoga ina/faafofoga fo’i i le talosaga, e le’i faia se su’esu’ega ae ua announce mai le fa’ai’uga.

I applaud the Prime Minister’s move to look into the Judges’ work and/or corruption? that has affected our people in mass.

Fa’afetai tele,

Vaa F Aga
