Unitech VC gets police protection

The National,Wednesday June 29th, 2016

POLICE are providing protection for University of Technology vice-chancellor Dr Albert Schram following the damaging of his car and “indirect” threats made to him.
His vehicle’s windscreens were damaged by a group of students who were reportedly not happy with a media statement he issued.
The attack happened around midday at the Unitech administration area inside the campus.
The group of students was not happy with Schram for not publicly disclosing which group killed a student in his dormitory on Saturday night.
Metropolitan Superintendent Anthony Wagambie said police officers had been assigned to provide protection to Schram.
Wagambie said the officers were based inside the Unitech campus but he declined to say how many “for operation reasons”.
Schram told staff members that it was obvious his life was under threat when his vehicle was damaged.
“There is no need for a social anthropologist to interpret that my life and that of my family are under threat,” Schram said.
“They (attackers) did not like my press statement (on the killing of a student) because I did not attribute any of the criminal acts to particular provincial groups,” Schram said.
Schram said he had to be evacuated from his home because he feared being attacked by the people who damaged his vehicle.
