German lecturer robbed in PNG

A GERMAN guest lecturer at the Martin Luther Seminary in Lae, Papua New Guinea was burgled last Sunday.
Prof Ulrich (Uric) Bergmann’s home at MLS campus on Busu Road, was broken into between 3am and 4am.
Bergmann said he work up at about 3.30am and when he opened the bedroom door, he was shocked to see a burglar standing in living room.
“I said hello and asked ‘how did you get in while the door is locked”.
“The guy ran out of the door and slammed it, later I realised that all my electronic equipment, including a Mac Book Pro Apple laptop, hard disc back up, a Digicel modem, several mobile phones and camera were gone” Bergmann said.
“These were my valuable properties containing important information that cannot be restored in anyway and if anyone returns them, they will have a good reward.” 
The laptop contains his work of ‘first chapter of intended memories to the latest effort of getting Greek script’ to step in for a Greek teacher.
“To get started all over again is a horror,” Bergmann said.
Known as Uric in Morobe, he was born and raised in Boana, Nawaeb, in 1940 and at age 11 left for Germany.
After secondary and tertiary education, he returned in 1969 as a circuit missionary for Wantoat and spent his entire life in the area.
