Samoa's politics deadlocked again

From Midday Report, 12:46 pm on 5 July 2021

Samoa's politics are deadlocked again, after the Head of State late last night reprimanded the country's Supreme Court, claiming it has no authority over him. The Court had directed parliament to sit by today but late last night the Head of State said it would sit in a month, to give time for by-elections and other court hearings to take place. RNZ Pacific's Dominic Godfrey is following the story and speaks to Māni Dunlop.
