0

 Prime Minister Juan Jimenez expressed concern on Thursday, over the presence of radical political groups at some of the country’s public universities.

“Terrorists’ feeding grounds are in universities,” Jimenez said according to Peru21. “Unfortunately, some are present in these radical groups like Movadef which operate and generate unease among students.”

The prime minister said the groups were “small, but make a lot of noise,” and said the government was in talks with university authorities in order to control the spread of subversive movements.

"We are working on a very interesting solution that would allow university deans to have all the ability and power to exercise control, and if necessary, expel students who do not go to study, but who engage in other activities,” Jimenez said.

The prime minister’s comments come a day after Orlando Velasquez, head of the National Deans Assembly, met with Jimenez, and discussed a “terrorist presence” at several public universities.
