Students sentenced

The front page lead story in this afternoon’s Liverpool Echo quotes at length the University’s press release on the sentences passed on the ten disciplined students:

Sentences were today passed on ten students who occupied the Senate House of Liverpool University last month. […]

In an official announcement this afternoon, the University stated: “On Monday 9 March, the Senate House of the University, which contains the normal place of work of the Vice-Chancellor and the Registrar and over 100 administrative, secretarial and clerical staff of the university was occupied by students.

“From the following day, Tuesday March 10, until Friday March 20, the students remained in occupation and excluded from the building virtually all the University’s staff who normally work there.

“Arising from this incident, the Registrar of the University preferred charges under the University’s disciplinary procedures, against a number of students of ‘conduct detrimental to the discharge of the duties of the university’.  The University’s board of discipline has now completed hearings of ten students against whom such charges were preferred.  All were found guilty and the penalties were imposed.”
