Last week the Supreme Court dismissed more than 200 charges against Fuiavailili Egon Keil.

The Cabinet initially suspended the commissioner last November.

Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sa'ilele Malielegaoi told the Samoa Observer the next Cabinet meeting would determine when Fuiavailili would return but there were preparations that needed to be done before he could resume.

He wouldn't say what those preparations were.

But in the meantime Tuilaepa said Fuiavailili should make the most of his time away from work and rest as he would have a lot to do when he resumes.
