Serial rapist dies before sentencing

Vakai ki lalo ki he fakamatala faka-Tonga

Uili Falamoe, Tonga’s notorious serial rapist has died early this month at the Hu'atolitoli prison, a family member has confirmed this to Kaniva News.

Falamoe was due to appear in court on Monday 18, for sentencing, after he was found guilty in June for multiple counts of carnal knowledge and sexual assault of two underage girls at Fonongahina.

He was remanded in custody at Hu’atolitoli for sentencing but died after he allegedly suffered a heart attack.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
