Ministry of Justice CEO dies

The Tonga civil servants community has mourned the loss of a fellow senior civil servant Sūsana Faletau.

Faletau served as Ministry of Justice CEO since 2016.

Her family and friends extended their “deepest sympathies” on social media.

“Your sudden and unexpected loss is so unbearable. RIL Susana, ofa lahi atu kiho famili during this difficult time,” a commentator wrote on Facebook.

“Life is way too short RIP Susana, we are all so shocked and still can’t believe you have left us,” another wrote. 

Faletau was instrumental in planning a new free community legal advice centre which is expected to be opened in Nuku’alofa this year.

The Centre will help survivors of domestic violence to apply for protection orders under the
Family Protection Act.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

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.
