Ex cop chief’s lawyer seeks ur­gent hear­ing

Fiji Sun - - World News - Samoa Ob­server

Komisi Ko­ria, the lawyer rep­re­sent­ing sus­pended Samoan Po­lice Com­mis­sioner, Fuiavaili­ili Egon Keil, is seek­ing an ur­gent hear­ing date for a mo­tion to quash the charges against his client. In the Supreme Court, Mr Ko­ria re­quested the Chief Jus­tice, Patu Ti­ava’asue Fale­fatu Sapolu to con­sider his client’s po­si­tion in gov­ern­ment. The re­quest fol­lows an in­di­ca­tion from Chief Jus­tice Sapolu that the next avail­able hear­ing date would be the week be­gin­ning 16th Jan­uary 2017. But Mr Ko­ria pleaded for an ear­lier hear­ing date, point­ing out the hear­ing will only take about an hour. The lawyer from the Na­tional Pros­e­cu­tion Of­fice, Lucy Sio, did not have any is­sue with the re­quest.
