Papatya Sutcliffe writes for the Cambridge Tab on an uncertain future for the prisoned student protestor:
The Tab has learned that Girton will decide next term whether or not Charlie Gilmour can return as a student.
Gilmour was sentenced to sixteen months in prison for throwing a bin at the car of Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall’s bodyguards. The incident occurred during the student protests in London last December. His actions, which also included swinging from the cenotaph, were described by Judge Nicholas Page as: “outrageous and deeply offensive”.
Girton refuse to comment on whether Gilmour will be allowed to return to his studies, but a University representative confirmed: “The issue will go to the College Council next term.”
