The National Executive Council has appointed retired judge, Justice Warwick Andrew, as the Chair of the Commission of Inquiry into recent violence at university campus around the nation.
Justice Andrew will be supported by a team of technical and legal experts that will soon be appointed.
Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, said the Commission of Inquiry was essential in helping to better understand what transpired in recent weeks, as well as to prevent the same from happening again in the future.
The COI will look into the role of the SRC; the role of the management of the affected universities; the role of Police; whether or not there was outside influence, and the inciting of students to encourage unrest at the universities.
The full terms of reference for the investigation is expected in the coming weeks.
