Mr. Kua, has also directed government lawyers to remain in Lae this weekend to prepare documents to set aside a court order preventing Dr. Schram from returning as Unitech Vice Chancellor. 

 

The compromise was reached after a four hour meeting between students and five ministers including Higher Education Minister Delilah Gore, Police Minister Robert Atiyafa, and Trade Minister, Richard Maru.
