Yesterday evening, a few pupils shouting anti homosexual opinions verbally attacked them from the road opposite the institution garden. Their instructor saw the cartoons and it has heard rumours of this attack that is verbal but feels that absolutely nothing can be achieved due to the fact assault happened off college premises. Neither pupil has reported to college officials. Have actually the pupils violated Meerai’s and Sean’s human being liberties?
