CAIRO: The Cairo University Deans Council rejected the restoration of the university guards during a Wednesday meeting discussing preparations for the second semester, said Cairo University media advisor Fathy Abbas.
A verdict was issued on Feb. 24 by the Court of Urgent Matters to return the university guards to campus.
Abbas told Youm7 that the council held a meeting to discuss preparations for the second semester, student residences and the security situation at the university.
Regarding the security situation, the council decided during the meeting to follow a cooperation protocol signed between the ministries of high education and interior, which supports the presence of police forces outside of campus that will be called upon to interfere if the university president requests.
Additionally, Abbas said each faculty member will be assigned to teach first term curricula that may have been missed due to on-campus protests.
