University professor suspended


A laboratory teaching staff member at Athens University (EKPA) was suspended Thursday following allegations of sexual harassment by female students. 

Kathimerini understands that the decision was taken after EKPA’s senate accepted the conclusion of an investigation confirming the allegations of inappropriate behavior and sexual harassment filed by students in January. 

Details of the allegations and the findings have not been made public. 

The senate referred the professor, who is a staff member at the Communication Department’s laboratory, to the institution’s disciplinary body which suspended him.
