Samoa's Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi, has called on the Samoa Law Society to ban lawyers who are barred from practising in other
Tuilaepa said there are lawyers practising in Samoa who have been de-registered overseas and are not allowed to practise in their home countries as a result of serious offences and professional misconduct.
He said these lawyers are taking tax payers money through legal aid fees.
"Ironically, according to my information, the same lawyers have made it a habit to mislead members of the public, to sue the government with full knowledge
that it's a lost cause. And in the end, the lawyers walk away as winners pocketing thousands of tala in legal fees," he said.
