Tonga Attorney General says Tapueluelu claims untruthful

Last week cabinet minister 'Akosita Lavulavu was arrested on fraud charges, while a former Prime Minister Lord Tu'ivakano was arrested in connection with the passport scandal.

Police Minister Mateni Tapuleluelu has told a radio audience this was done to make the police commissioner Steve Caldwell look good so his contract will be renewed.

The acting Attorney General, 'Aminiasi Kefu, said this claims was absolutely incorrect and untruthful.
