DETAILS of the final report on the Government-sponsored investigations into the PNG University of Technology (Unitech) will be disclosed after it has been assessed and studied, according to Cabinet minister Don Polye. 

The acting Minister for Higher Education, Research Science and Technology yesterday received the final report from chief investigator, retired Judge Mark Sevua in Port Moresby.

Polye said the investigations were private and conducted by the Government on specific areas including the operations of the university.

“I will not disseminate any information about the report,” he said. 

“It is a matter for the Prime Minister and Cabinet to decide on after having assessed and studied the report and recommendations given by the committee. The Government can take action on improving the situation at the university.

“I urge all parties (who were the subject of the investigations including the student body and staff) to cooperate and accept the findings and recommendations.”

Sevua said the report was in two parts – one contained the main report and the other had the documents which helped in the investigations.
