University staff 'silenced' over racism complaint

From Morning Report, 7:17 am on 24 June 2019

Auckland University staff say they were silenced by senior management after raising concerns about a student with extreme far-right views, just days after the Christchurch terror attack.

A staff member says the student, who has since left the University, sent threatening emails to staff and interrupted a tutorial to express his extreme views on immigration and colonization on March 20.

RNZ has agreed to not identify the staff or student involved to protect their identities.

Katie Scotcher has the story.
