Court suspends the rustication of 18 out of 22 UCC-ATL students

The Cape Coast High Court has ordered the University of Cape Coast to halt its decision of rusticating 18 students indicted for their involvement in some clashes between Atlantic (ATL) and Oguaa Halls during a hall week celebration at the school months ago.

The 18, most of whom are hall executives were allowed to write the end of semester exams.

The court, presided over by Justice William Boampong also directed the school to allow the students write their examinations and carryout other academic activities.

The University of Cape Coast last week said it had suspended the students, most of whom are hall executives of ATL for their involvement in the clashes that led to one student reportedly being paralyzed. Three students were also stabbed in the bloody incident with some properties of the school being destroyed.
