Securing students

The Cabinet, chaired by His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa yesterday, was informed about the results of an investigation into the incident at the Hamad Town Intermediate Girls’ School through a report submitted by the Deputy Premier and the probe committee chairman, HH Shaikh Mohammed bin Mubarak Al Khalifa.

The committee, following its six meetings, concluded that there was no drug abuse or dealing at that school, after verifying reports from the Ministry of Education, Interior Ministry and Health Ministry, in addition to the results of the investigation carried out by the Public Prosecution. 

The reports also revealed that the allegations included in the video clip were false and would fall under defamation and hype, and therefore have been referred to the judiciary.

The panel also confirmed the integrity of the administrative and legal measures taken by the Education Ministry’s School Discipline Committee, adding that the two students will be allowed to sit their final exams next month and to attend school regularly next year.
