Murder they Said

Murder they Said

The Student's Association recently paid the court costs and legal fees of the persons involved in the mock murder.

The mock murder, a capping stunt, took place in "Pigeon Square." It was so good that the ambulance and the homicide squad of the CIB was called out.

As this was an authorised stunt, that is a stunt registered with and permitted by the Stunts Controller, who had the backing of the executive of VUWSA, the executive decided to pay £42 to cover the legal fees and court costs.
