Samoa police want more time to finalise case over beating of detainee
The district court in Samoa has given another two weeks to state lawyers to allow them to finalise criminal charges and complete an investigation into the alleged beating of a detainee by six police officers.
Police have been investigating the case since August last year after a complaint filed by the detainee’s family.
The six defendants had been scheduled to enter pleas today but the court has now given the police until October the 29th to complete their case.
