This Act amends the Village Fono Act 1990, which provides for the recognition and protection of Village Fono and administration by Village Fono. The objectives of the Act and powers of the Village Fono are redefined and new definitions inserted (e.g. “freehold land”, “government land” and “leasehold land”. Section 9 is repealed and replaces. Subject to this section, the relevant Village Fono does not have jurisdiction over a person residing on Government, freehold or leasehold land located within village land where that person: (a) is not a Matai of that village; or (b) is not liable in accordance with the custom and usage of that village to render tautua to a Matai of that village. A Village Fono may take certain measures with respect to such persons/land.
