UPNG semester suspended
It is a sad day for the University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) and country as the first semester has been suspended for an indefinite period, Loop PNG reports.
The announcement was made by Dr Nicholas Mann; acting chancellor, to the students at the university forum square today.
The suspension which takes effect immediately will see the students vacate the dormitories and university premises within 48 hours, and support amenities for the students will also cease then.
Meanwhile, UPNG SRC president, Kenneth Rapa, has accepted the decision with the demand that all their airfares and the rest of their semester fees be refunded before they vacate the campus.
