Former Unitech vice chancellor

Schram yet to return to PNG

He was not present at the Waigani Committal Court yesterday and again today when his case returned for mention.

His lawyer Greg Manda briefly told the court he will return in September.

A copy of his affidavit and medical certificate was sent via email and was given to the Committal court by Manda today.

Schram was unable to make it back to PNG also due to his medical condition, the court was told.

The court was also told Schram was unable to obtain the original copy of the PHD certificate and needs to go through Court in Italy to obtain it.

Dr Schram allowed to travel

The Waigani National Court granted leave to Schram’s bail variation application today, allowing him to travel out of the country.

The former two-term VC, who is on a tourist visa, was granted permission to temporarily leave the country and travel to Italy.

The purpose of his trip is to go back to the European University Institute in Florence, Italy, and bring his original PhD certificate, which is the subject of his case in the Committal Court.
