Last May, the university dismissed six students and suspended other eleven for two years following their alleged participation in anti- government riots in April to protests the relocation of the university buildings from Khartoum to a suburb.

The Vice Chancellor Ahmed Mohamed Suleiman on Saturday received a report of a committee tasked with considering requests filed by the dismissed students, said a statement extended to Sudan Tribune by the University of Khartoum.

According to the statement, the report recommends to reduce the punishment to some students to varying degrees based on the evidence available to the Committee and witness statements. It also suggests to take into account the social and family conditions the students are facing, as well as their good academic performances.

The Vice Chancellor will meet the Council of Deans after the Eid al-Adha holiday to discuss the findings of the report and to take a decision on the readmission requests filled by the dismissed students.

The university decided to form a committee to study the cases of the dismissed students following a series of protests by their families that handed over memorandums to the minister of higher education and the vice chancellor of the university.

The panel met with the students, their families and the university guards who witnessed the riots.

Despite the publication of reports in Khartoum media at the time about the government plans to relocate the university, the government denied the relocation of the university from its historical building in central Khartoum and denounced the political manoeuvres of the opposition forces.
