A special committee has been set up by authorities of the University of Cape Coast (UCC) to investigate leaked nude videos of a Student Representative Council (SRC) President aspirant of the university.
The committee comprises mental health experts, clinical psychologists, gender experts and counselors.
Members are expected to conduct their investigations under utmost confidentiality to protect the rights of the young lady, according to school authorities.
The leaked nude videos of the young lady went viral on social media a few weeks ago — the public condemned both her and the school as a result.
Some people even said the lady, Naa Korkor Addo, may be suffering psychological problems.
Senior Assistant Registrar in charge of Public Relations for Cape Coast University said the institution will conduct the investigation meticulously and professionally.
Major K. Baah-Bentum (Retd) said contrary to views by a section of the public that the school was not taking steps after the video went viral, UCC was working behind the scenes.
Mr Baah-Bentum disclosed that the welfare of its students was of paramount importance adding “we, therefore, refuse to be a part of the current social commentary occasioned by mere sentiments and feelings.”
He asked for sympathy from the general public for the young lady and her family in these trying times and added that the family obviously required privacy as they went through the current challenges. – See more at: http://www.myjoyonline.com/news/2015/February-28th/special-committee-formed-to-investigate-leaked-video-of-src-president-aspirant.php#sthash.lArxFgqN.dpuf
