香港大學校長馬斐森就昨晚校委會會議後的衝突事件,向全體師生、舊生等發出電郵(電郵英文全文附載於文末),譴責部分學生堵塞通道阻止校委離開。他又指責,學生將校委,他自己以及保安等人身安全致於嚴重危險當中。馬斐森在電郵中提到,校方已把昨晚現場片段錄影下來,並會提供予警方。

馬斐森指出,校方已在校委會會議後發出聲明,毫不含糊地提到校委會同意檢討學校的管治,正是回應了學生訴求。他批評,學生手段完全沒有必要,無助對事件取得任何進展,「我們會永遠願意作理性的討論,並與同學辯論,但我們不能縱容暴民統治。」他指出,昨晚場面將進一步損害了大學聲譽,他相信香港大學的學生應該可以表現得更好。他在文末提到,校方已把昨晚現場片段錄影下來,會提供予警方。

港大新任校務委員會主席李國章昨首次主持校委會會議,會議決定成立專責小組研究大學管治,但要待教資會研究大學管治的報告公開後才會成立專責小組,學生認為校委會有意拖延,兵分兩路發起堵塞大樓出口,並要求與校委對話。港大學生會會長、校委馮敬恩今早在商台表示,李國章在會上提出要「等埋」教資會即將發表的檢討大學管治報告,「李國章自己話要等兩個月,就可以等到教資會報告」。

馬斐森電郵全文:

Important message from Professor Peter Mathieson, President and Vice-Chancellor

Dear Colleagues, Students and Alumni,

On behalf of the Senior Management Team, I condemn the behaviour last night of HKU students who (amongst others) put the safety of Council members, including me, and University and security staff at serious risk, and besieged the building in which Council had met so that we were unable to leave for several hours. This is not the way to achieve progress: we will always be willing to engage in rational discussion and debate with students but we cannot condone mob rule. The actions were totally unnecessary because the Council had earlier, as announced in a press statement at the end of the meeting, unanimously agreed to commission a review into the University’s governance which was one of the central demands that the students had made publicly. The scenes last night will have further damaged the University’s reputation and they bring no credit to those involved: HKU students should be capable of better. Video images were recorded and will be made available to the police.

Professor Peter Mathieson
President and Vice-Chancellor
