Friday 9 July 2021 Apia Samoa. The Police Commissioner Fuiavaili’ili Egon Keil left the country on Thursday to seek medical treatment in New Zealand, confident that Samoa is in good hands with his team of Deputies and Assistants.
Announcing his intention to take a leave of absence for one month, Su’a confirms that Deputy Commissioner Papalii Monalisa Tiai-Keti will take up the lead for the Ministry of Police, Prisons and Corrections Services during his absence.
“The Samoan people can remain confident and reassured in the Samoa Police, Prisons and Corrections Services under my deputy’s stewardship during my brief absence”, says Su’a Fuiavailiili.
“I am taking this leave on the advice of my doctor to seek medical treatment in New Zealand for a condition that cannot be treated in Samoa but by a medical specialist found overseas”.
Su’a acknowledged that Samoa is going through a difficult time still hung in the uncertainty of a political crisis that is now going onto four months since the April 9th general election; but says he remains confident that the community will continue to receive professional police and prison services in his brief absence.
“I look forward to returning in good health ready to serve our community;
“Faafetai and God Bless”.
