  • Patrick George Zaky’s arrest : the motion of the University of Bologna

    The arrest and torture of the Egyptian student Patrick George Zaky, enrolled at the University of Bologna, led to the following motion initiated by the Rector Francesco Ubertini and by mutual agreement of the board of governors, the directors of Departments, the Campus Presidents, the Administrative and Technical Staff Council and the Student Council, the Academic Senate, at the special session of 12 February 2020:

    "As members of the scientific and academic community of Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna, we were and still are deeply upset by the recent news of Patrick Zaky’s arrest, as he is a member of our community and a student of the Erasmus Mundus Master of Arts "GEMMA" in Women’s and Gender Studies. We hereby urge representatives of our Government and of the European Union, who have already taken prompt action, to keep monitoring this matter with close attention so that Patrick Zaky’s fundamental rights are safeguarded from any violation. With the high values characterizing our academic community at every level, such as freedom of thought, the centrality of critical thinking, and social responsibility and commitment, we adamantly reaffirm the importance of protecting human and political rights and, in particular, the right to individual freedom and to the freedom of speech, everywhere and in all cases.
    We are deeply committed to Patrick Zaky’s safe and quick return to Bologna, so that he can resume attending his classes. Until then, it is our duty to make sure that the Italian Government and the European Union continue to do their utmost for ensuring Patrick’s return to our community."
