3:44 pm on 18 January 2007

Samoa's tourism authority chief executive officer has been suspended while the government's Ombudsman office investigates an alleged sexual harassment complaint against the CEO.

The decision to suspend Matafeo Reupena was made during a board meeting of the tourism authority last Friday.

The acting chief executive officer of the tourism authority says the suspended CEO is in New Zealand.
