Comission on Higher Education says students looking to protest have the right to do soSeptember 8th, 2008 - 1:22 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi
Secretary-General of the Commission on Higher Education Sumeth Yamnun (สุเมธ แย้มนุ่น) commented on the emergence of University Student networks rallying against the government and calling on students and teachers across the nation to take to Civil Unrest by suspending on academic activity for 3 days starting tomorrow. Mr. Sumeth stated that each university has the right to suspend operation according to their own regulations which cannot be interfered by the commission.
Mr. Sumeth noted however, that demonstrations conducted by university students have to be within reason and necessity. He asked that students excercise their rights with consideration to the consequences. The Commission on Higher Education has already notified universities under supervision of their right to suspend activity but asked that security and education not be neglected.
