The Prime Minister, Hon Samuela ‘Akilisi Pohiva, yesterday said that he does not support the overthrow of His Majesty King Tupou VI.


His comment was in response to an article published by one of the local newspapers that appeared in Tongan “PTOA supporters planning overthrow – Not a single word from Prime Minister ‘Akilisi Pohiva”.


The PM said he carried out his duties and work in accordance with the oath that he took in January this year.


Pohiva said, if the paper is aware of those who are planning to overthrow His Majesty, then they should inform Tonga Police as soon as possible, so that they could be charged.
