USP Meeting

Meeting of USP called to determine pro-chancellor's fate

According to Islands Business, Winston Thompson had been instructed to convene the meeting by the interim council chair, Nauru's president, Lionel Aingimea.

Aingimea told Thompson that the university's supreme body would need to determine his fate and that of the chair of the Council's Audit and Risk committee, Mehmood Khan, also of Fiji.

It reportedly stemmed from the pair's refusal to accept the council's decision earlier this month to clear USP Vice Chancellor Professor Pal Ahluwalia of misconduct allegations.
