#PNG Media Council calls for investigation into journalist’s death

To the media fraternity, the call for justice is no longer Rosalyn’s alone.

The Media Council of Papua New Guinea is calling for an investigation into the untimely death of Senior Journalist and Post Courier Business Editor, the Late Rosalyn Albaniel Evara.

While the Council respected the wishes of her immediate family to proceed with her burial, it acknowledges that the pain that Late Rosalyn had to endure is no longer just hers, and a pain that many more women in the country may be going through every day.

To the media fraternity, the call for justice is no longer Rosalyn’s alone.

It has happened to one of our own, and it is time to acknowledge, that it needs to stop. More needs to be said about this cancer, which thrives behind closed doors, and breeds, on fear.

Many of our female journalists suffer from violent, abusive relationships, yet are too fearful of speaking out. The abuse they suffer affects their work, and their families.

We must continue to report on this issue, despite cultural and social challenges.

We cannot keep silent!

While many questions have been asked about why the Late Rosalyn did not get the help she should have received from her friends and colleagues, it is not too late to help those who are living with the same fear she had to endure.

  1. What has come of this? Has there been any developments or is this still under investigation?
    Such a sad story to read, and then the way she was almost shoved under the carpet by Post Courier is just totally unbecoming of that institution.
