Resident Medical Officer (RMO)

Dr Berry retells ordeal

This was the question that police officers asked before they started assaulting Dr Newman Berry, a Resident Medical Officer (RMO) attached to the Obstetrics & Gynaecology Services at the Port Moresby General Hospital.

The 28-year-old Engan doctor told Loop PNG that he was returning from Tokarara, after dropping his sister off, when he noticed a police roadblock at the Hohola 4 peak. This was around 9.30-10pm on Wednesday, May 31.
