A prominent figure in politics in Samoa, the paramount chief of Satapuala village, To‘alepaialii Toesulusulu Si‘ueva, died last week in Sydney after a heart attack.

In the late 1980s he was a cabinet minister and chairman of the country’s national airline, Radio New Zealand International reports.

To‘alepaialii also led the Samoa Progressive Party through two general elections.

Most recently he was involved in a legal action against the government over a land claim by his village involving more than 2000 hectares near Faleolo International Airport.
