Former Samoa MP wins court claim against sports authority
Samoa’s Supreme Court has upheld a construction company claim of 150,000 US dollars of additional costs for the construction of a sports gymnasium for the 2007 South Pacific Games in Samoa.
The then South Pacific Games Authority, established by the government to manage all preparations of the games including construction of sports facilities, was the defendant.
A former politician, Toluono Feti, who is also the managing director of Afolau construction, took the matter to court after the former sports authority’s CEO and the government failed to pay the outstanding funds.
In the ruling, the court awarded the former MP’s company more than 180,000 US dollar with a 12 percent interest accrual dated back from September 2007 until last September.
