SI Acting Attorney General to talk in Aussie onbehalf of Moti

Prime Minister's Press Secretary, Deli Oso today retracted a statement she released yesterday that Mr. Julian Moti would go to Australia soon to have a 'face-to-face' discussion with the Australian Federal Attorney General and Director of Public Prosecution.

In a statement released to local media today Deli Oso said: "I wish to retract the Press Statement yesterday titled ‘Moti to return to Australia for discussion’.

"All references to Mr Moti in the statement should be made to the Acting Attorney General, Mrs Nuatali Tongarutu.

"Mrs Tongarutu will be traveling to Australia to discuss with her Australian Counterpart, Phillip Ruddock and the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosection, Australia’s request for the extradition of the suspended Attorney General, Julian Moti QC.

"This is to determine whether the request is genuine and not politically motivated. It is only after the discussion between the Acting Attorney General and her Australian counterpart and the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecution that the government will respond to Australia’s extradition request for Moti."
