Another Samoan police officer under investigation for rape allegations
A Samoan police officer is being investigated for the alleged rape of a female detainee.

Assistant Police Commissioner and spokesman Papalii Li’o said the officer is being investigated for the alleged crime.
This is second Samoan police officer under investigation in the force.
A senior officer has been accussed of sexual harassment allegations against a junior police woman.
But Papalii, in a report on Radio Polynesia, denied this.
He said the senior officer is being investigated for some kind of misconduct against the woman officer.
