Emotions ran high yesterday (23/10/17) after the funeral of the late Business Editor for Post Courier, Rosalyn Albaniel Evara, as graphic images of her bruised body were shown on a slide during her funeral service.

The pictures which were taken a day after her death showed her badly bruised body.

This prompted her colleagues in the media to sought proper procedures to carry out an autopsy before being laid to rest.

Public Relations Coordinator at the National Fisheries Authority and friend, Priscilla Maigu, said late Roslyn had told her of her ordeal a week before her passing during a work trip to Kavieng.

Maigu said late Roslyn had told her of her ordeal a week before her passing during a work trip to Kavieng.

Priscilla, who had laid a complaint yesterday with Homicide, had requested for the deceased’s mother to give her consent for an autopsy to be conducted.

News of Rosalyn’s passing last week, shocked many of her colleagues until yesterday’s funeral left many angry from the news of violence that she had endured over the years, until her untimely passing.

Rosalyn, who was supposed to be buried today, was transported late last night by Police and Homicide unit to the funeral home for an autopsy to be conducted.

Along with her colleagues in the PNG Media and the wider community, Australia and Pacific media are calling for justice as well for the late Rosalyn Albaniel Evara.
