Mass burial for unclaimed bodies – PNG

20/2/08

Five unclaimed bodies at the Mt Hagen general hospital will be mass buried at the public cemetery by the hospital staff if no relatives own up to claim those bodies. Acting Director for Medical Services Dr Guboro Urae said yesterday (today) that the bodies have been held at the hospital’s morgue for over a year and no relative has shown any interest. “We have a number of times made public declarations in the past twelve months, but nothing has happened, therefore this is the final notice through the media,” he said.
