The Council of Higher Education has cancelled the work permit of Boğaziçi University academic member Assist. Prof. Dr. Noémi Levy-Aksu.
Levy-Aksu told bianet her contract, which was renewed by YÖK’s approval, was cancelled by the YÖK’s ruling dated February 22. Work permit of Prof. Dr. Abbas Vali, who had resigned from the university, was cancelled via the same notice.

Mine is a piece of this wave and we will continue to stand against it”.
Hearing of the decision in London, Levy-Aksu noted she will return to Turkey and fight against the decision.
