University staff to student – “I hope you get deported”

So we posted about the case of two students arrested at Old College yesterday earlier, and also updated it to link to the Student article about the mess, but this merits a new post.

In the Student piece, allusions to “xenophobic verbal abuse” were made. We now know that university staff told Hona-Luisa Cohen-Fuentes, an international student, “I hope you get deported” and “You could be any random scum off the street”. This incredibly pleasant sounding conversation was rounded off by Royal Protection Officers telling the pair that they were a “threat” and “lucky not to have been shot.”

We would like to remind readers that the pair were engaging in the nefarious activity of studying on university property.
