Ammon News - Mu'tah (Petra) – A disciplinary panel investigating recent riots at Mu'tah University will, in the next few days, publish the names of students who took part in the violence in which an engineering student died, and determine penalties for those participating, Mu'tah University Dean of Student Affairs Ali Dmour said on Sunday.

He told Petra that those found guilty face a stiff fine along with other punitive measures, stressing that the panel had not come under any pressures and pledged to "meet the higher interest of the university and its students and defend its distinguished reputation." "The disciplinary body's decisions will be promptly carried out, as it is mindful that no injustice will be done to any student", he said, stressing that the probe is neutral, accurate and backed by solid evidence as it seeks to maintain a safe university environment and ward off any attempt to undermine the university as a key national and civilized institution.

Dmour said penalties would range from total or partial suspension of students, suspension of scholarships or aid for any students involved in on-campus violence, and repayment of all stipends a student had acquired before the punishment's enforcement.

He further said dismissal will be irreversible.
