University of Papua New Guinea student leaders case

UPNG student leaders’ accommodation issue back in court

The student leaders’ appeals were successful before the UPNG Appeals Committee in Oct, allowing them to return to class.

The decision came after the National Court had earlier issued a stay order against their respective permanent exclusion from studies in August.

But they have not been allowed boarding and lodging on campus, something the University of Papua New Guinea said is a privilege which it cannot accord the students after their alleged involvement in the student boycott and unrest between June and July.
