A group of students published this Sunday a Twitter video where several university players intoned macho expressions at the end of a game
Just a month and a half after the macho chants of the Elas Ahuja Residence Hall, attached to the Complutense, the university has to face a similar controversy. And it is that the Association of progressive students of the Faculty of Law published this Sunday on Twitter a video recorded on November 10 that is already generating a stir. That day the men’s teams from the faculties of Information Sciences and Law from the university itself faced each other. At the end of the game you can see how the Law players hug each other and sing a rehearsed song: “Rape, rape, bribery. Who dominates? Right!”, it was just the beginning of his speech.
A spokeswoman for the student association that has denounced this matter assures that all the university rugby teams sing songs at the end of their matches, regardless of whether they win or lose. “It is tradition that they do. The problem in this case is the seriousness of what they sing”, he affirms, before assuring that the Law team is the only one that usually uses expressions of this type.
La Complutense has already issued a statement showing “a total rejection of what happened” and assures that they will not cease in “their efforts to work so that these inadmissible actions never have a place in any sphere of society, and even less, in the university”. To do this, they have explained that have already opened an investigation with the aim of “analyzing what happened, purify responsibilities and apply the corresponding sanctions to the players and their sports clubs”.
From the university platform have organized a protest, scheduled for next Wednesday, with the aim that chants of this type are not repeated again. “We ask the university institutions for effective and consistent measures,” explains the same spokesperson, before detailing that the association advocates for expel the team from the competition and prohibit its players from competing. In addition, of course, to the immediate cessation of these expressions.
The university itself has explained to this newspaper that investigative commissions of this type are usually made up of the Equality Unit, the Vice-Rector for Students and Services Inspection, although They do not venture to detail how long it will take in giving a verdict: “We are going to talk to players, coaches and clubs to see under what conditions it happened. But this is like a trial, each investigation requires a different time because you have to analyze what has happened. Although We’ll try not to take too long.”
