Why haven't these policeman been dismissed from their positions?
After all there been charged with manslaughter
it's obvious this is a fake trial, and these policeman ago be looked after
therefore, it is reasonable to assume that there's more to it than just a policeman visiting his father's funeral.
There's a reason why the Tongan establishment wanted this man dead, maybe he was exposing corruption within the police Department

Gus McLean - there is the judicial process called innocence until proven guilty. This is not the 16//1 report to which you sided with the lawlessness thugs of Tonga. for our global readers, the following link gives a glimpse of why you are dead against the police and military authorities here in tonga so that everyone googles your name and the online abuses you have generated against tonga and tongan cultures since the time you left tonga many years ago.

I agree with Boru 77 these police officers should be out of service while waiting for their trail. The trail will decide their fade. They should not allow to serve the public while this trial is waiting in the wing. If a commoner is accuse of murder they will hold him in jail until the trail is over. They should not treat these police any different because they have a uniform on.
