The Minister of Justice and Courts Administration, Fa’aolesa Katopau Ainu’u, is seeking to quash an outstanding warrant of arrest against him in American Samoa.
The warrant of arrest for Fa’aolesa was issued in 2008 containing a number of allegations, in relation to his handling of a client.
In a telephone interview with the Samoa Observer yesterday, the Minister said his lawyer in the territory is working on his case. He did not say who his lawyer was.
“My lawyer will submit a motion to quash the warrant,” he said.
