Matai Pleads Not Guilty to Indecent Act on Girl Under 16


A high chief from the village of Faleasiu has denied two charges against him; one of burglary and one of indecent act on a girl under 16 years old.

Sauvao Poese was represented by his lawyer Afa Lesa during Supreme Court mentions where a hearing date has been set for his trial.

The incident is alleged to have occurred over a year ago, in February 2020.

Sauvao remains on bail to await Court proceedings.
