Masaniai prosecuted corruption in his office

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (Radio New Zealand International, Sept. 7, 2008) - There’s been no word yet from the American Samoa attorney general’s office into the reported sacking of the assistant attorney general, Faamomoe Masaniai.

Masaniai has been reportedly sacked from office after he prosecuted four employees from the attorney general’s office on corruption allegations.

Monica Miller says he has been associated with several high profile cases prosecuted by the government and has upset some when he said earlier on TV that corruption is rampant in the attorney general’s office.

Masaniai has declined to comment and he said tha

t he’s been advised by his lawyer not to say anything. He’s supposed to leave the island tonight. I do believe that there will be repercussions because he had been working very closely with the FBI, not just on white collar crime, but human trafficking, drug cases."
