Nine jailed in Samoa over compensation
13-05-2015 - RNZI.

The nine from Tanugamanono village, including several village matais, have been locked up at Tafaigata prison because they have not paid 350,000 US dollar of damages and compensation to a family whose house and belongings they burnt and destroyed in a land dispute.

A family member, Afu Faumuina, says the court has set out various amount of money they had to pay but since the court ruling last year they have not complied.
