The University of Guyana Council (UGC) has fired one of its lecturers for inappropriate behaviour following a meeting Wednesday night.
Although it was unclear last evening whether the lecturer was told of the decision, a top source of the university confirmed that the decision has been taken and the lecturer, Evan Persaud, will have to go.
This was after months of an official inquiry and statements by students over the allegedly sexually-perverted behaviour of Persaud.
A report was made and handed over to the management of the university and the decision was taken following the Council’s meeting. The Faculty of Technology lecturer is the head of the Advisory Committee on Broadcasting (ACB) and a prominent member of the Indian Arrival Committee (IAC).
It is unclear what kind of repercussions his sacking will have on the other two organisations.
Kaieteur News was unable to make contact with him last evening. Among other things, Persaud reportedly took the students to a hotel to write exams and is known to use inappropriate language with students.
It was not clear last night whether the university had investigated any allegations of sexual misconduct.
Registrar of UG, Vincent Alexander, would not comment or confirm that any decision was taken but acknowledged that a report was made regarding the lecturer.
