The disciplinary board in the Faculty of Commerce, Helwan University, punished 13 students by dismissing them for two full academic years, and four students for one academic year, and punished three others by dismissing them for a term.
The disciplinary board was headed by Dr. Khairi Abdul Hadi Mehassab the dean of the faculty, in addition to the faculty vice-principal.
Also, Helwan University president, Dr. Abdul Hayy Ebeid, referred Dr. Yahya Al Gazzaz, a professor at the Faculty of Science in the university and a member of 9th March Movement, to a disciplinary board scheduled to be held on Jan. 30, 2007, after Dr. Al Gazzaz refused to the university administration’s demand of not supporting students in internal issues, specially his participation in the conferences of the free student union.
The dismissed students consider the punishments as illegal and unconstitutional and they haven’t been imposed because of organizing parallel elections. Through these severe punishments, the university president, a top member in the National democratic Party, wants to show that he is loyal to the party through persecuting students and destroying their future while any one belonging to the Muslim brotherhood is facing detentions and intimidations under a flagrant media escalation against the group.
The students said in a statement:" The disciplinary board witnessed many conflicting situations indicating that the faculty dean isn’t seemingly aware of what he is doing, the most prominent of which is that his being surprised that many of those dismissed students were under arrest when the charges were directed against them.
