PAGO PAGO, American Samoa (January 21, 2000 – Radio Australia)---The powerful House Public Safety-Judiciary Committee in American Samoa will hold an investigative hearing into allegations that fake American Samoa birth certificates are being produced locally.

The Samoa Post reports that five fake birth certificates have been discovered by the local office of the Social Security Administration.

Vice Speaker of Administration, Republican Faleatafa Tulafono Solaita, Jr., whose daughter heads the local Social Security Office, alerted the House about the possibility that a group of people were producing fake birth certificates for aliens.

A hearing has been scheduled, with witnesses expected to include the Attorney General and officials of the Vital Statistics Office, which issues birth certificates.
