A master tattooist, whose name is suppressed by the Samoa Supreme Court, has been fined $1,300 for kidnapping a girl while heavily intoxicated.
A suppression order from the Court prevents the publication of the man’s name and that of the 21-year-old he kidnapped.
Presiding over the matter was His honour Justice Vui Clarence Nelson.
Representing the defendant was lawyer, Lei’ataualesa Jerry Brunt.
The Court heard the incident occurred on June 9 last year at 6pm.
The defendant pleaded guilty to one count of kidnapping earlier in the matter.
