Samoa's Prime Minister, Tuila'epa Sailele Malielegaoi, has accepted a request from the head of state, Tui Atua Tupua Tamasese Efi, that a commission of inquiry he'd called for be withdrawn.
Tui Atua had asked for the inquiry as a way to resolve a land
dispute between him and his village of Lufilufi which banished him two weeks ago.
In a government statement, the Prime Minister says the head of state has requested that his plea for a commission of inquiry be withdrawn and he's accepted that.
This follows public criticism at the spending of public funds to resolve what was essentially a private matter.
