    The incident happened in Puke when the king’s noble arrived at Tasimani Fa’s residence and assaulted him.

    The court was told Lord Fohe was not happy after Fa challenged him during a meeting in December 2020 .

    In court, Lord Fohe was apologetic and asked Justice Langi for mercy.


    The judge discharged him without conviction, which has spared him a criminal record.

    The court reminded  Lord Fohe his responsibility to keep a good record because of his hereditary title and avoid assaulting people.

    Lord Fohe’s fine came after the New Zealand High Court ordered that the former Governor of Vava’u, Lord Fulivai and his wife repay a New Zealand businessman $253,370.60.

    It said the Fulivais must repay the  money paid to them by company director Christopher Barrett to make land available to him, together with interest dating to January 1, 2018; repayment of loans with interests and costs for the entire proceedings.
