University Statement on Professor Clara Ponsati
Clara is a valued colleague and we are committed to protect and support her.
As her employer and an institution committed to the defence of free speech, we are deeply concerned by recent developments, their motives and potential consequences.
In the current circumstances, we believe there are legitimate arguments that Clara is being targeted for standing up for her political beliefs.
That is anathema to us, and we will continue to offer her every appropriate support, while respecting due legal process.

Principal and Vice-Chancellor
