The National Students Union has stood behind the University of Technology students by calling on the government to publish findings of the Sevua Report.

NUS interim president and UPNG Student Representative Council president Bobby Yupi says they will support Unitech’s cause and ask for the report to be made public.

“That is the simplest thing they can do and I don’t know why the government is holding onto that report and putting the future of a lot of our students at stake,” he says.

“The NUS is not happy with the way in which the government is trying to address that issue.

“The matter is simple and straight forward because once the Sevua report is made public that can bring some understanding to the students.

“That is the stand from the National Union of Students, we will call for the Sevua report to be made public and that is the only way the students can be allowed to get back to classes and if that is not made public, the students must be reasoned to and their side of their story must be taken into account,” says Yupi.

He says the union does not understand why a person willing to contribute to developing the country’s human resource can be deported when those with a questionable reputation and criminal record are taking up business opportunities in the country.

“Under the laws of immigration only a person who is a threat to the national security of the country can be deported.

“This person is not a threat to the national security of this country and I don’t know why they really deported him.

“The solution is simple and our support for them to make the Sevua report public,” says Yupi.

Meanwhile the Unitech administration building remains closed for the second week running and main campus gate for the third consecutive week since the boycott started.

“Our stand remains even after the ministers’ visits. We had a strong support from NASA today,” SRC committee spokesman Stanley Tepoka said.

“They assured us we must continue this fight. No surrender, no retreat. We want Schram back and we mean it.’’
