Imperial's response

Thank you for your correspondence with regard to the article that recently appeared on the Mail & Guardian website...We take all such allegations very seriously and respond swiftly in order to determine the facts and respond accordingly. We have comprehensive processes and procedures in place to enable safe (and anonymous if necessary) reporting, thorough investigations and expeditious response to all allegations, incidents and concerns. The complainant was subsequently traced and was unable to provide any tangible evidence of sexual misconduct or harasment. Only vague inferences were made with no verifiable details provided or other victims or perpetrators identified. The investigation was concluded and no further complaints or allegations have been made or received.
