Discussion of 24 April 2012: Topic of concern

28 May 2012

The Council has received the remarks made at the Discussion held on 24 April 2012 on the following topic of concern:

The selective and unreasonable punishment of a single student for a collective act of protest by students and senior members.

The student in question has appealed to the Septemviri against the decision of the Court of Discipline and in the circumstances the Council does not believe that it should make a response to the points raised in the Discussion until after the Septemviri have heard and determined that appeal.
