  • interfere with, obstruct or disrupt university and academic activity;
  • damage property;
  • contravene University rules;
  • intimidate other students or staff.

This is a final order, which the University has elected to activate and service thereof has been effected by the Sheriff of the Court on the protesting students and further by University Protection Services on Monday, 17 February 2020 , in accordance with clause 4 of the aforesaid order.

Any contravention of this final order, shall be in direct contempt of the court, and may lead to both criminal and disciplinary action.

The Interdict and an explanation thereof is attached.
