Samoa MP guilty of dangerous driving

11:32 am on 11 May 2015

Samoa's ruling party MP and Associate Minister, Peseta Vaifou Tevaga, has been found guilty of dangerous driving.

Peseta was ordered by the District Court to pay a less than 100 US dollar fine.

But the MP was found not guilty of other charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and failing to comply with the use of the breathalyzer device.

The two counts were dismissed.

Peseta was charged after a government vehicle he drove collided with a taxi at a traffic light intersection in Apia.
