Police have arrested a woman concerning a recent threat that targeted the University of Otago graduation ceremonies.
A 22-year-old woman was charged with threatening harm to people that were going to be attending the ceremony, including threats to the property.
On December 9, the University of Otago had to cancel their graduation ceremonies after originally postponing them due to a security threat that was sent to the university earlier in the week.
The women is due to appear in Auckland District Court today.
Southern District Commander Superintendent Paul Basham says this will provide a sense of relief for the University of Otago students and the wider Dunedin community.
“I would like to acknowledge Vice-Chancellor Harlene Hayne, her team, and the University community for the resilience they have shown during an incredibly trying time.”
“I also want to acknowledge the tireless efforts of both the investigation team and the members of our staff who have been working in the community, providing reassurance.”
The matter is now behind the courts, so no further information will be commented on by Police.
