A state funeral will be held to honour the life and service of Samoa's longest-serving Chief Justice, Patu Tiava’asue Falefatu Maka Sapolu, who passed away over a week ago. 

In announcing the decision, Prime Minister Fiame Naomi Mata'afa said that while there was never a Cabinet Directive on matters such as what the Government can offer should a senior member in Samoa's judiciary passes on, her Cabinet has agreed to host a state funeral for the former Chief Justice.
