Tuila'epa Sa'ilele Malielegaoi said an inquiry report into the vice chancellor and two deputy vice chancellors has been presented and his ministers will discuss it on Wednesday.

Tuila'epa said until then nothing will be released.

Last month the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Fui Dr Lau Asofou So'o, the deputy vice-chancellor of academics, Peseta Desmond Lee Hang and the deputy vice chancellor of the corporate service, Maugaoalii Faamanu Diana Mualia, were suspended over several issues including the checking of last year's student's results.
