PM Pōhiva: Missing court documents did not worry me

Tonga’s Prime Minister ʻAkilisi Pōhiva has told Kaniva News last night in Auckland he was not perturbed by the fact some of his legal documents prepared for a court case were not found after a house he was living in was gutted by fire  on Thursday morning.

Hon Pōhiva said courts in Tonga have copies of those documents and his long-time legal counsel Dr Rodney Harrison in Auckland also has some of them.

“I just want to stay calm in situation like this I do not want to allow such situation to strongly influence me while I have to stay focus on my role as leader of the nation, ” Hon. Pōhiva said.

The Prime Minister said he had talked to his daughter Laucala in Tonga and he was satisfied some of his important files were able to be saved during the blaze.

He was thankful no one was injured in the fire.

The Prime Minister was in Auckland with his wife First Lady Neomai for medical care.

He will leave for Tonga tonight Saturday 25 while his wife was staying in Auckland for her medical treatment.

Hon. Pōhiva said he is expected to return to Auckland shortly on his way to Fiji next week to take part in a meeting.
