Oxford alumni attack college over 'bitter campaign' against dean

Now Robin Priest, the chair of the Christ Church Association Committee which represents alumni, has written to the Governing Body urging the College to bring the “tawdry and damaging episode” to a close.
The letter, seen by The Daily Telegraph, says: “Our overriding concern is to help the House to recover from the bitter campaign against the Dean and the misguided proceedings of the past two years.”
It goes on to ask question how alumni will be able to “regain confidence in the House after such a catastrophic misjudgement and failure of Governance”.
Mr Priest urges the College to publish the Tribunal’s findings, arguing: “It is wrong that those who brought the charges against the Dean, which were found to be baseless, should now try to hide their actions.
“It is even less acceptable if those same people are continuing to spend the College’s money on an attempted cover up.”
Last month the Christ Church said in a statement that the complaint process has concluded, and Dr Percy would resume his duties as Dean.
“As required by Christ Church’s Statutes, an internal tribunal was convened to consider a complaint raised against the Dean in September 2018,” they said.
“Following a thorough investigation, the tribunal has decided that the charges are not upheld and that there is no cause to remove the Dean as Head of House.
