UL Expels One for ‘Looting, Vandalizing’

first_imgBarely a month following the expulsion of three students and suspension of two others, the administration of the University of Liberia (UL) has again expelled one student for “looting and vandalizing” the residence of the former vice president for Academic Affairs and Provost, Dr. Wede Elliott-Brownell. The UL Administration’s June 5 decision is aimed at weeding out “incorrigible (hopeless) students, and strengthens discipline at the flagship university.” Student Emmanuel A. Scott of the College of Business and Public Administration with ID#80202 was expelled from the UL with immediate effect, the Administration announced late Monday, June 16, through a statement it issued. The UL Administration reached the decision recently when the investigative Committee submitted its findings to the president, Dr. Emmet A. Dennis.  Expelled student Scott is reported to have violated the student handbook, which forbids looting and vandalizing on campus. The penalty of such crimes ranges from warning to suspension and expulsion, depending on the gravity of the offense. According to police report, on the morning of November 22, 2013, student Emmanuel Scott allegedly broke into the residence of Dr. Brownell on the Fendall Campus during a riot and reportedly took away a television set. Following the incident, the student was arrested by both the UL police and officers of the Liberia National Police (LNP). But with the help of some community dwellers and friends, the police officers were over powered and the student subsequently managed to escape the scene with hands in police handcuff. However, he was re-arrested on May 1 this year when he reportedly showed up to receive his semester grade sheet. He then reportedly admitted that he indeed committed the act, but pleaded for mercy from the UL Administration. Student Scott, according to the UL statement, further informed the police that he was not a part of the group of students who earlier planned the riot, but was forced to join them, “because majority of the planners were his friends.” “My greatest regret now is I overly re-acted more than even the planners,” Scott is reportedly quoted as telling the UL authority. He has meanwhile, written a formal letter of apology to the UL Administration asking for forgiveness. He is quoted in the letter as saying, “I sincerely regretted my action and vowed never to engage in any act of vandalism during his academic sojourn.” He also reportedly volunteered to work with the UL Police to protect lives and property on the campuses of the institution. However, the UL Administration has refused to accept his apology and has expelled him from the institution. In a furious mood, Dr. Dennis has reportedly said, “Although his Administration is student-centered, none of them should abuse the opportunity.”He has vowed to weed out the “broken bottles among his diamonds.” It can be recalled that last month, the UL Administration expelled three students for “dishonesty”, and suspended two others for acts “incompatible” with the rules and regulations of the university.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Fans react to Bale v Ronaldo show… and name who’s best

first_imgWales’ memorable Euro 2016 campaign ended on Wednesday evening, as the Dragons were beaten 2-0 by Portugal.Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Nani netted early in the second half to secure passage to the final, and the Portuguese had more than enough about them to see out the win with apparent ease.Even Welsh superstar Gareth Bale could not drag his team to victory, despite a promising solo performance. He was trying hard to drive his teammates on, but against the Portuguese defence, he was constantly shut down again and again.He was certainly more involved in the game than his Real Madrid rival Ronaldo, but it is he who will go down in history as a goalscorer in a European Championship semi-final.The Bale v Ronaldo battle was heavily built up prior to kick-off, and fans took to Twitter to react to the duo’s performances – and pick who won the battle in the hotly contested clash.

That helps a little bit because I’m not in doubt, he was not in doubt, but if you are constantly asked about it then it’s like, something obviously is wrong.“You should not constantly think about it. It only happens if you work hard, if you are in the right space, if your team-mates see you in the right moments and if you make the right runs then you can score. It’s an exceptional number, hopefully he can continue.”It was a good evening for all Liverpool’s front trio, with Roberto Firmino opening the scoring, Salah adding a second just before half-time and then netting from the penalty spot early in the second half, before Sadio Mane made amends for missing a second spot-kick with the fourth.
