The University of Ghana has defended its sanction against Professor Gyampo and Dr Paul Butakor following their suspension in connection with the BBC documentary Sex for Grades which was released last year.
The two are currently serving a six and four months suspension respectively without pay after being implicated in the BBC's Sex For Grades documentary. The two suspended lecturers will also undergo appropriate training on the University's sexual harassment and misconduct policy.
But the lawyer for the two suspended lecturers, Francis-Xavier Sosu stated that considering the other sanctions attached to the suspension, the action is too harsh.
Responding to the statement of Lawyer Francis Sosu on Starr FM today, Chairperson of the Anti-Sexual Committee of the University of Ghana Margaret Amoakohene said the sanctions are justified
Again, the University of Ghana said the institution hopes the suspension of Professor Gyampo and Dr Butakor over the BBC Sex for Grades scandal will serve as a deterrent to potential offenders.
The Director of Public Affairs of the University of Ghana, Stella Amoah earlier today in an interview said the sanction will deter other lecturers of the University from engaging in such practices.
