Tonga's government backs 2006 riots investigation
5:25 pm GMT+12, 03/04/2019, Tonga

Tonga's government is lending its support to fresh investigations into the 2006 Nuku'alofa riots.
 
It follows a call from the King in his closing speech to parliament last week.
 
A government spokesperson, Lopeti Senituli, said Prime Minister 'Akilisi Pohiva would welcome a commission of inquiry.
 
But he said he was not sure what it would achieve, given that criminal prosecutions have already taken place.
 
“At the moment there hasn't been any discussion at all about what the commission is going to do, who is going to be the members of the commission etc., nothing,” he said.
