UL Expels 3, Suspends 2

first_imgAuthorities of the University of Liberia (UL) Wednesday, May 28, expelled three students for acts ‘incompatible’ with their status as students, the University’s vice president for Relations, Dr. S. Momolu Getaweh, Sr., has confirmed. Two other students have also been suspended for three academic years and eight semesters each.The UL decision, according a release is in an effort to reinstitute discipline and curb student violence, and other unruly acts.The three expelled students are being identified as Joyee O.T. Wilson with ID#34949, James E. Julo, ID#49264 and Moivee Dennis, ID#51225. The students, the UL Administration said, were expelled for ‘receiving money from candidates, forging Ecobank deposit slips and issuing fake UL receipts.  The suspended two are facing the wrath of administration for staging riot and holding several professors hostage, among them, the Dean of the College of Agriculture and Forestry, Prof/Dr. Roland Massaquoi for over five hours.The incident was recorded on the Fendell Campus of the University early last year. The two suspended students are, Abraham B. Sarwah, ID#66102, and Moses Kollie of the William R. Tolbert, Jr. College of Agriculture and Forestry.Following the April 2013 riot on Fendell Campus by students of the Agriculture and Forestry, UL President, Prof. Emmet A. Dennis appointed a committee to investigate the root causes of the riot and the role played by students. According to findings from the investigative committee, Student Moses Kollie assaulted Assistant Professor E. Nimley of the College of Agriculture and Forestry during the 2013 April riot on Fendall Campus in contravention of the student handbook. By that, Student Kollie has been suspended for three academic years (six semesters) beginning first semester of academic 2013/2014. He has also been required to undergo six months of counseling before returning to the UL should he muster the courage to return. As for Student Abraham B. Sarwah, he is held liable for ‘theft of property’ in the aftermath of the same 2013 April riot on Fendall Campus. Hence, the statement said, Student Sarwah has been suspended for four years (eight semesters), and has to undergo six months of counseling before returning to the institution having served his suspension. However, in a separate communication to the suspended students, the UL Administration strongly warned them not only to repeat the acts that led to their suspension, including any other act that contravenes the student handbook. The affected students have been further warned to keep away from the premises of the UL (Fendall, Capitol Hill, Straz-Sinje, and the A.M. Dogliotti College of Medicine Campuses) until their suspensions are lifted. In a related development, the UL President has frowned on acts that have the propensity to disrupt activities at the institution. Dr. Dennis is quoted as saying that the UL has had enough of disruptions, and therefore, “any faculty or student that engages in act that disrupts normal activities at the university will be thrown out.” Dr. Dennis sounded the caveat recently when he met with some members of the UL Faculty Association to discuss matters relative to lifting of the institution. It can be recalled that the UL Administration in 2013, issued stern warning letters to 13 other students for “violating various rules of the Student Handbook.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
