Dr. Fose said his credentials are recognised and accepted by the PNG Medical Board, the Coroner and the Court, and as such it allows him to practice and give evidence in court as a medical expert witness.
Fose stressed that the wider community must understand that the interpretation of the finding of an autopsy takes into account information from CID homicide case officers, photographs, crime scene reports, and other medical notes available at the time of post mortem examination.
“The preliminary report and the upcoming final report is based on set standards of practise in forensic pathology, thus it enables the report to be admissible in court,” He said.
Fose called on the Governor to retract his statements and apologise for bringing his credibility and profession into disrepute.
Meanwhile, the final report is expected to be completed next week and Rosalyn’s family, especially her aunt has refused to let her niece’s death be another statistic.
Mary Albaniel, Rosalyn’s aunt who revealed the deceased bruised body at the funeral told EMTV that they have taken pictures of the deceased and found marks caused from what seemed like lashes.
She said the circumstances’ surrounding the death of her niece has caused her to come out and break the culture of shame that surrounds gender-based violence in PNG Culture.
Meanwhile, the case is now before the Homicide Squad who has confirmed with EMTV that witnesses have been called to give evidence as they continue to investigate the matter.
