The Minister of Education, Culture, Science and Communication, Olinto Daio, said that the students responsible for stopping classes at the ISP, one of the poles of the São Tomé and Príncipe Public University (UPSTP), will be criminally liable.
“Appearing at dawn, trespassing the school wall and damaging the locks is a crime and people will be held responsible” – said Daio, who considers the reasons for the classes suspension unfounded.
It is recalled that the UPSTP students decided not to go to classes indefinitely in protest of the teaching conditions. They require granting of internal scholarships, scientific books, internet and drinking water, among other demands.
Founded in 1996, Instituto Superior Politécnico (ISP) was turned into the Public University of São Tomé and Príncipe (USTP) in 2014. The university also included the School of Teachers and Educators Training (EFOPE), the Institute of Health Sciences “Victor Sá Machado” (ICS-VSM) and the Agricultural Technical Improvement Center (CATAP).
