Special Notes & Announcements
- In Memorium - Bernard Borok - RIP 2003
This week is a sad one for Manus Province and all Manusians as we mourn
the passing away of great Manus character. As a kiap and a high
government official Bernard Borok was the supreme diplomat. He was a
friend to all he served and worked with and was enemy to none.
The news is still not very clear at the moment but I understand Bernard
passed away on Wednesday 5 February at the Lorengau General Hospital. I
also understand a state funeral is being arranged for him in Lorengau
before he is laid to rest.
Our condolences go to his family and loved ones.
May He Rest In Peace.
