60 Minutes Australia: Paradise Lost - Full episode

19 July 2016

60 Minutes Australia: If you're thinking of holidaying in Samoa, you'd be wise to think again.

The brochures show an idyllic South Pacific paradise and promise a welcome as warm as the sun.


But that can never be the truth while a sadistic thug named Lauititi Tualima lives there.

He's Samoa's most dangerous criminal. Remarkably he spends most of his time in prison, but security there is such a joke, it's no deterrent to Tualima's life of extreme violence.

Australian tourists Angie Jackson and Tommy Williams found themselves prey to this man and they’re very lucky to still be alive.
