Tripoli, 4 January 2014:
The Law Faculty at Benghazi University has dismissed, out of hand, demands by students that . . .[restrict]the Vice Dean of the department be dismissed and examinations changed.
Some law students at the university have been protesting their examination curriculum, making complaints about their faculty’s Vice Dean and criticising what they claim is the department’s lax implementation of regulations.
Sulaiman Ibrahim Sahati, the Dean of Law at Benghazi University, did agree, following talks with students, that institutional rules needed to be properly enforced. However, he stressed that the removal or appointment of university staff was not a concern for students. He added, similarly, that examinations were set by teaching staff, not by those taking exams.
Sahati said that any complaints by students against members of staff should be submitted to the University President and reviewed by a neutral committee.
The Dean added that examinations for Law Faculty students would be held, as planned, starting next week. [/restrict]
