A 31-year-old man of Toamua has been given a 15 months suspended sentence for being “disrespectful” and a “show off.”
The decision was delivered by Judge Vaepule Vaemoa Vaai of the District Court.
During the festive season last year, a drunken To’omila Silia went to his neighbour’s property and started making very loud comments.
His uncle approached him and told him off.
This angered Silia who turned around and threatened his uncle.
“I’m going to slice you with a machete,” he said to his uncle.
He also threw stones at him.
