Lecturer suspended over allegations of defamation - University of Salford
The situation within the School in question is terrible. The staff are aware of the truth and support the lecturer who is suspended for allegedly harassing this PhD student. That is why there were 74 staff signatures supporting him and this would have been greater if all staff were contactable when this petition was making the rounds. There are management cronies who support the incessant nepotism and corruption proliferated by the very top of the School. The VC should be ashamed of himself for implying that race is a factor in the production and dissemination of this material. If the VC or Head of School had any integrity whatsoever they would resign, but being men of low calibre in terms of transparency, fairness and honesty, this could be a step too far.
