By Terry Tavita

APIA, Samoa (August 18, 2002 – Samoa Observer)---Deputy Prime Minister Misa Telefoni has been released from an Auckland hospital following a leg operation.

This was confirmed by his secretary, Mrs. Matalena To’omata.

Misa left for New Zealand last week en route to Fiji for a Forum meeting there. It is understood he was visiting a bookstore in the center of town, when he slipped and fell and sustained a leg injury as a result.

Fortunately, the Deputy Prime Minister was accompanied by a Treasury official at the time.

The Deputy Prime Minister is "recovering well and in good spirits," according to Mrs. To’omata. He is expected back in the country at the end of next week.
