UCC students secure court injunction against their rustication

The 22 students recently rusticated by authorities at University of Cape Coast (UCC) have secured an injunction on the decision.

A Cape Coast High Court on Tuesday, May 23 placed the interim injunction on the several suspension of the students.

Presided over by Justice William Boampong, the Court ordered the school not to restrain the students from writing their end-of-semester exams.

University of Cape Coast rusticated the students as per the recommendation of an eight-member disciplinary committee chaired by the Pro-Vice Chancellor.

The students, most of whom are executives of Atlantic Hall, where the violence took place, were rusticated between two and four semesters.

But there was public outcry against the decision with the Student Representative Council asking the students to ignore the decision.

On Tuesday, the Court ordered authorities of the University not to interfere with the academic work of the students.
