College president denies attempt to 'gag' lecturer

A UNIVERSITY head yesterday denied he had tried to "gag" one of his lecturers and told how he received a "lashing" from a government minister over controversial comments the lecturer had made.

DCU president Ferdinand Von Prondzynski claimed that lecturer Sean O'Nuallain had "repudiated" his contract of employment by being absent from his duties for prolonged periods, failing to turn up for meetings and for not being there for students.
