University management has secured a court interdict against Rhodes students who were barricading roads leading up to campus, and suspended classes for the rest of the week.
Five students were released on a warning and may face prosecution when they return to court in July, says EWN's Govan Whittles.
The interdict is against students who are partaking in any unlawful activity. Since they don't have permission for gathering here, their protest is illegal under the Gatherings Act.— Govan Whittles, EWN reporter
After the release of a so-called #RURefrenceList, students are demanding the university suspend 11 alleged rapists on campus and change its policies on how rape victims are treated.
A task team will be established to investigate the rape allegations and existing policies at the institution.
The university has also called on students to lay formal charges against the accused.
