One of the men accused over a gunfight at Fasito’outa last year has not had a shower since he was charged and arrested.
The claim was made by lawyer, Maiava Visekota Peteru, when the accused men appeared before Chief Justice, His Honour Patu Tiava’asu’e Falefatu Sapolu, this week.
Malaki Tavita, of Faleatiu and Afega, and Ovaleni Palau Faisauvale, of Faleatiu, face charges involving narcotics and firearms.
Tavita is represented by Maiava while Faisauvale is represented by lawyer, Iuni Sapolu. In the absence of Ms. Sapolu on Monday, Pa’u Tafaogalupe Mulitalo appeared on her behalf.
