The American Samoa Governor has reiterated that he welcomes the presence of the Federal Bureau of Investigations in the territory.

Lolo Matalasi Moliga told KHJ News he met with the FBI and he has instructed officials of the Development Bank of American Samoa to cooperate with the agents to make sure they get the right information.

The FBI is currently looking into the 1602 low income housing programme that was administered by the Development Bank and the National Emergency Grant.

Governor Lolo was the president of the Development Bank of American Samoa when the 30 million US dollar housing programme was implemented.

He says he is pleased the FBI is in the territory gathering facts and making its own decisions.
