A CANTERBURY University law

student being investigated for a

sexual assault has been allowed to

go overseas on a study-related trip.

Bu the university’s dean of

law Ursula Cheer is refusing to

discuss the matter.

“I can’t comment

about any

of this because

of confidentiality

and privacy,” she

told The Star

yesterday.

The Star has

learned a female

student has laid

a complaint abou the accused

being allowed to go on the trip.

It is understood it is no the

same person who has laid the

sexual assault complain to the

police.

The Star has been told it is a

rape investigation.

The Star sent a number of questions

to Canterbury University

yesterday but none would be answered.

Said Canterbury University

spokeswoman Margaret Agnew:

“UC cannot respond to allegations

that are before the police.”

She referred the questions

back to Dr Cheer. Her phone was

turned off.

Police would also not comment

on the matter.

The overseas trip involves

both male and female law students.
