港大法律學院前院長陳文敏疑遭特首梁振英打壓,令出任港大副校長一事受阻。香港大學學生會發表公開信,要求校方成立獨立調查委員會,清楚調查事件,捍衛院校自主。

公開信全文如下:

香港大學學生會致校務委員會委員之公開信 | Open Letter to Council Members from HKUSU

香港大學校務委員會委員鈞鑑:

星期二(二零一五年二月二十四日)校務委員會前後,本會幹事及數十位同學於場外守候,關注遴選副校長(人力資源)一事,要求校方恪守自主,不容遭受侵凌。然而,會議結束後梁智鴻主席連番迴避同學訴求,拒絕承諾召開緊急會議及討論會否成立獨立調查委員會。本會對此失望並深表遺憾。

就遴選副校長(人力資源)一事,近日社會臆測不斷,更有報道指梁振英曾干預遴選過程。有線寬頻早前報道,教務長韋永庚於一月初向教職員發出電郵,表示三位副校長的任命可於一至兩個月內確認。然而,校務委員會不僅無了期延遲原有議程,亦沒有交代遴選進度。對此,校務委員會有必要就主席梁智鴻及教務長韋永庚說法上的矛盾有所交代。

基於保密協議,我們理解部份文件未能披露,予以公開。因此,本會要求成立獨立調查委員會,翻查相關文件,徹查遴選過程,從而查明當中有否出現政治干預。獨立調查委員會應仿效「港大民調風波」時體制,由無利益關係的第三者擔任委員,由終審法院非常任法官出任主席。獨立調查委員會亦應參考八一八事件調查委員會的做法,向香港大學學生會評議會匯報調查結果,確保過程透明,保障港大師生的知情權。

茲事體大,本會謹此懇請各位委員回應以下兩點,開誠布公:

一・是否同意成立獨立調查委員會,徹查事件並確保任命過程中無政治干預;
二・是否同意召開校務委員會特別會議,討論相關事項。

清者自清,濁者自濁。獨立調查委員會會將一切查至水落石出,呈現事實真相,供師生及公眾一同判斷。我校院校自主及學術自由,如今繫於閣下回覆。耑此奉達,敬候賜覆。敬頌

Dear Members of the Council,

Immediate independent investigation for HKU’s autonomy — to reveal the apparent truth

We are sorry to express our deepest discontent towards the unsatisfactory reply made by Dr the Hon. Che-hung Leong after the Council meeting on 24 February 2015 (Tue) on the arrangement of the appointment of the Vice-President and Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Academic Staffing and Resources) (VP&PVC (ASR)). More than 50 HKU students participated in the sit-in protest during the Council meeting, in hope of expressing our concern towards the selection process and the importance of institutional autonomy. While shunning from the demand of students, he did not even promise to hold an emergency Council meeting concerning the establishment of an independent investigation panel for the above scandal.

The recent reports suspecting Mr C. Y. Leung’s political interference in the appointment of Prof. Johannes Chan as the VP&PVC (ASR) have induced disparate guesses and opinions in society. According to the report of i-Cable TV, in early January, Mr Henry W. K. Wai, the Registrar, emailed and informed all staff that the appointment of the three Vice-Presidents would be confirmed in one to two months. Yet, not only did the Council postpone the discussion of the appointment of VP&PVC (ASR) to an unspecified date, there is not even a simple update on its progress from Dr the Hon. Leong’s reply. With regards to such contradiction between the discourses of Dr the Hon. Che-hung Leong and Mr Henry W. K. Wai, we demand a reply from the Council.

Given the confidentiality policy in the Council, it is understandable that certain documents cannot be disclosed to the public. Therefore, an independent investigation panel shall be set up to scrutinise the whole selection process and all related confidential documents, so as to ensure that there is no political interference. It is hoped that the composition of the panel shall resemble the one set up in the year of 2000 for investigating the scandal concerning the Public Opinoin Programme (POP) led by Dr Robert T. Y. Chung. All positions shall be taken up by personnel from unrelated third parties, namely the non-permanent judge of the Court of Final Appeal as the chairperson of the panel as in 2000. Moreover, similar to the review panel of the August 18 Centenary Ceremony, the panel shall present a report to the HKUSU Council. All these can ensure the transparency of the whole process and the right to know of HKU students.

We hereby have two major demands regarding our concerns:

1. to establish an independent investigation panel to investigate the scandal and ensure the absence of political interference
2. to hold an emergency meeting to discuss the establishment of an independent investigation panel

An incident is destined ever since the very beginning, no matter a truth or a falsehood. An independent investigation panel shall undoubtedly ensure its transparency and reveal the true picture for both HKU students and the general public.

Your swift reply is much appreciated. Our academic freedom and institutional autonomy depend on you.

Yours faithfully,
The Hong Kong University Students’ Union
