In his post, Arsalan writes that he stayed in the group chat to collect evidence: "I did voice my concerns in the group, but went silent for a long time, rarely pitching in to help with exam advise or talk about football. I mainly stayed in the chat to collect evidence. "I did not come out with it straight away due to pressures of third-year, consistent anxiety and worry of how to deal with the situation, so I just kept it to myself and distanced myself from university." Earlier today, Law firm Hill Dickinson confirmed that they have revoked their offer of employment to Matthew Bell.
