American Samoa's Public Defender, Ruth Risch Fuatagai, has urged lawmakers to consider banning high alcohol beer imports.

She says some beer brands being imported into the territory have a very high alcohol content.

The lawyer says some countries have bans and similar legislation in America Samoa would help reduce alcohol related problems.
