Corruption in Samoa is a must-read book for foreigners wanting real-life examples of corruption in Samoa.
Author Dennis A. Smith lived for seven years in Samoa, and shares his experiences fighting corruption in half a dozen government departments. The revelations of an ‘inappropriate” relationship between the Palemia and one of his CEO’s [named in the book] generated heated words between the Palemia and author.
His subsequent banning order was issued illegally (i.e. contrary to Samoan law) and was done secretly by the Minister of Immigration- the very same man, Tuila;epa, the Palemia!
