The American Samoa, Governor Lolo Matalasi Moliga and his deputy, Lemanu Peleti Mauga, have celebrated Christmas with a lunch with prisoners yesterday.
The Governor hosted a luncheon with inmates at the Territorial Correctional Facility, for the second year running.

He said while the inmates have been separated from society because of their crimes, they should remember they will one day rejoin society and that they must contribute to the betterment of their families, community and government.
The Governor also said there are many areas that need improvement in jail and assured that the government is working to improve services.
