TAFILEH —AlGhad— Employees and administrators at the Tafileh Technical University organised a sit-in protest surrounding the University’s deanship building, demanding the resignation of head dean, Dr Eshtewi Abbadi.

Notably, protests began last Sunday over rights the deanship has confiscated, protestors claim.

Since then, the protest has escalated, and protestors built their tents surrounding the deanship building, as gendarme forces set up around the university campus on alert.

On their part, Dr Abbadi denied there was a breach by police or gendarme forces.

The protestors’ main demands include end of service benefits, day labour inclusion in overall service, and marital health insurance, among other demands.
