Sir Colin Campbell has not made the case for academic freedom reigning at the University of Nottingham. He needs to cite facts rather than relying on assertions. The answer sought remains: why waste police time and public money instead of investigating the matter internally? Furthermore, it is disingenuous for the vice-chancellor to suggest that the outstanding issues before the courts are related to the matter for which the police were called in. If Hicham Yezza's visa papers were not in order it casts doubt on the adequacy of the university's vetting procedures for job applications but it has nothing to do with the matter for which the police were called in.
