A professor who leveraged his power to harass one of his female students is infuriating many people around the world.
On 5th of this month, Facebook account “Leading Trends” released a CCTV video clip showing a professor forcibly kissing a student in his office.
The footage was taken at the University of Bolivia Gabriel René Moreno.
In the video, the professor stands next to the student, looking over her work on the computer.
Then all of a sudden he locks her from behind so she cannot move her head, and forcibly kisses her.
The video shows the girl stunned and trying to push him with both hands. But he continues his act even more forcibly.
The student eventually bursts into tears in fear and embarrassment of what just happened.
What’s even more shocking is that the professor then hands money to the crying student
She refuses immediately, but he insists. When she takes the money, the professor once again kisses forcefully and leaves.
Those who saw this clip is aggressively demanding the dismissal of this professor and initiation of a full official police investigation on this case, and possible crimes that already happened in the past.
“Academia is particularly fertile territory for those who want to leverage their power to gain sexual favors or inflict sexual violence on vulnerable individuals,” Caroline Fredrickson wrote in The Atlantic last month.
It is a tragedy that these unqualified people are teaching and leading young minds in educational institutions.
