Toe toloi pe hopo 'a Looti Tu'ivakano ki he uike kaha'u hili 'ene hā 'i he fakamaau'angahe uike' ni. Ko e toloi'aki 'eni hono tu'o ono' ke ne hā ai 'i he fakamaau'anga he 'aho 14 'o māhina ni'.

Lord Tu’ivakanō and his legal defence team have been granted another adjournment for the sixth times.

The noble’s court case was expected to be heard on August 9 and has already been delayed four times.

The former Prime Minister’s trial was rescheduled to August 14.

The adjournment was requested to allow the Defence more time to prepare for the trial.

The former Speaker has been charged with numerous crimes, including making a false statement for the purpose of obtaining a passport, perjury, acceptance of bribery and money laundering after he was arrested on March 1.

The Tongatapu’s No. 1 Noble’s Representative to Parliament first appeared at the Magistrate court on March 2 where his case was postponed until March 26.

It was again postponed until May 30.
