Sussex disciplinary hearings adjourned due to bias

Students at Sussex University “have been victimised and made examples of”, writes Jelena Timotijevic at Defend the Right to Protest:

The kangaroo court set up by the university’s management managed to appoint a senior member of the university staff as a chair of the hearing panel who on previous occasions publicly condemned students’ occupations and their right to protest on campus.

On this matter, Geoffrey Robertson QC told the demonstration that the panel set up therefore was “unlawful” and the chair of the panel resigned, resulting in the collapse of the hearing.

It is the view of the students’ legal team that there should be no need to set up another disciplinary panel and conduct these hearings.
