Uni investigation into anti-Israel protest
AN INVESTIGATION has been launched at Essex University following anti-Israel protests by students.
A talk by the deputy ambassador Alon Roth-Snir was disrupted and cut short after an angry demonstration at the Wivenhoe campus.
The protest had been called by the Students’ Union and other societies who said the visit breached union policies on Israel.
But the university proctor, whose role is to oversee the disciplinary process, has now launched its own investigation procedure over concerns the demonstration was in breach of university policy on freedom of speech.
