The two students involved in a sick group chat will not be returning to the University of Warwick in September, VC Stuart Croft has announced.
Professor Croft released a statement today (5/1) saying: "We are committed to ensuring the safety of our community.
"I have today spoken to the two young men concerned and confirm that neither of them will be returning to the University. I am continuing to listen to the views of students, staff and all members of our community here at Warwick and support them so that we can learn from this experience.”
Last month news broke that two of the students who were handed ten year campus bans for their involvement in a group chat that discussed raping women they knew had successfully appealed to have their punishments reduced.
This meant that they would be allowed back onto campus early and would be returning in September 2019 after their ban was reduced from ten years to one.
It is not known whether the men have themselves made the decision not to return or if the University of Warwick has reviewed their appeal. We will update this story as it develops.
