Apia, SAMOA — The Samoa Police Commissioner has rejected claims the police prosecutor sabotaged a criminal libel case.

The case in question was a criminal libel case against an ordained church minister based in Sydney, who hosts a radio programme there.

The ruling FAST Party lodged a complaint against Tiumalumatua Maifea Fetu, who was subsequently arrested and charged with criminal libel when he arrived in Apia for a church conference last month.

The Samoa Observer reported the sabotage claim was made by the party chairman, Laauli Leuatea Schmidt.

Samoa police commissioner Auapaau Logoitino Filipo said the case file will be looked at to see if the police overlooked anything in their investigation.

But he maintained the police prepared properly for the case.

Police are investigating.
