False pretence

Schram seeks bail variation to travel

Dr Schram was arrested on Wednesday this week and charged with false pretence.

He was arrested over allegations he produced falsified and fraudulent documents relating to his PhD qualification, which he obtained on 24 November 1994 from the European University Institute.

He appeared at the Committal Court on Thursday after he was allowed police bail of K2,000.

He returned today before the same court with his lawyer, seeking variations to be made to his bail conditions.

Manus man acquitted by court of misappropriation charges

John Morgan Selan, an engineer, is the Managing Director of Manus Earthmoving Ltd. His company was awarded a contract to do maintenance work on two feeder roads at the Wosera/Gawi District valued at K1 million in 2013.

Deputy Chief Justice Sir Gibbs Salika conducted a trial in his case and after examining evidence before the court, he found Selan not guilty to all three charges.
