港大校委會今日表決,拒絕接納物色委員會的建議,任命前法律學院院長陳文敏為副校長(學術及人事資源)。陳文敏發表聲明,指事件顯示維護學術自由及大學自主,仍須大家努力,強調今次不是一場勝負之爭,而是對價值、信心、堅持及承擔的挑戰。他又形容,今次事件中港大校友走在一起,無懼風雨清楚表態,足以令人自豪,希望關心港大的人,不會因為今次事件而氣餒。

陳文敏在聲明中形容,今次事件非關他個人的得失,而是關乎學術自由、院校自主等核心價值,港大正是因為堅持這份價值與自由,才得以擠身世界前列。他又指今次事件已告一段落,但事件反映在將來,維護學術自由和大學自主仍須大家努力。他又感謝過去十個月,很多朋友、同事、家人的支持、鼓勵與信任。

I don’t think I should comment on my own appointment, the decision of which rests with the Council.

I would like to thank my family and my many friends and colleagues for their support, encouragement and trust in the past 10 months. It has not been an easy period of time, and I want to thank wholeheartedly every single one of them. As I have said many times before, the issue of the appointment of the PVC is really not about me. It is about the threats to the autonomy, values and freedoms that have made HKU a world class, vibrant university, an institution that we love and are proud of.

I hope all those who care about HKU, especially our alumni who have come together and bravely voiced their gravest concerns, would not be disappointed or discouraged. It is not about winning or losing. It is about challenges to our values and beliefs, our perseverance and our endurance. The appointment process has come to an end, but the decision of the Council shows that we still have a lot of work to do to preserve academic freedom and protect the autonomy of the University.

對於本人的任命,校委會經已作出決定,這屬於校委會的職權,我不宜再作評論。

過去十個人多月並不是一段容易的日子,我衷心感謝家人和很多很多的朋友的支持,鼓勵和信任,陪我走過這段風雨飄搖的旅程。就如我之前多次強調,這次任命並非我個人得失的問題,而是關乎學術自由和院校自主的核心價值,港大能擠身世界前列,亦正因我們堅持這些價值和自由。

我希望所有關心港大的朋友不會因今次事件而氣餒,港大校友走在一起,無懼風雨地作出了最清楚的訊息,這己足夠值得我們自豪。這不是一場勝負之爭,而是對價值和信念,堅持和承擔的挑戰。任命一事總算告一段落,但這次事件亦同時展示,在未來的日子裡,維護學術自由和大學自主仍須大家努力。
