Unitech Students Stand Firm

Unitech students are yet to surrender their stand, in the three week long boycotting of classes, even after the ministers’ visit to Unitech last Friday.

SRC President, Eddie Nagual says, this is to make sure that, the government honors its assurance over Dr. Schram’s return.


The five government ministers who visited Unitech last Friday, have publicly announced that Dr. Schram, will be allowed back into the country, but not so soon.

It may take several more weeks before the students return to classes.


A team of senior government ministers, who visited Unitech last Friday, may have answered only half of the student’s unanswered questions.


The SRC president, together with the student body, has also made a bold stand leveled against the government’s decision, last Friday.


“We wont go back to class until we come to a compromise with the government”, the SRC president said on Friday.


The visit to the campus last Friday came three weeks following boycotting of classes, after students tried to seek national government’s attention, to reinstate Dr. Albert Shrcam as the Vice chancellor for the university.


The ministerial delegates, led by Justice Minister, however had assured the students of Schram’s return. While Dr. Shram is cleared off all restrictions, there are other issues that government will be working, to resolve.


The Sevua report is expected to be reviewed, and then presented to the National Executive Council tomorrow by the Higher Education Minister. The government will also look into a court order by the sidelined university council, which prevents Dr. Shram’s return.


Although the situation may appear to be partly resolved, the gates into the university remain shut, and the administration office closed, as the boycott continues.
