Lawfarers will recall Ben's trip, two months back, to Bangkok and the 26th annual International Military Law and Operations (MILOPS) Conference.  While attending MILOPS, he interviewed a number of key conferees---including 'Aminiasi Kefu, Solicitor General for the Kingdom of Tonga.  For those unfamiliar, the latter consists of 176 Islands in the South Pacific.

During the discussion, Ben and Mr. Kefu explored a wide variety of subjects, including Tonga's legal system, its role in combating terrorism, and the security threats currently facing the country.
