A letter sent to the local educational authorities on Sunday has called for an administrative inquiry into Tariq Ramadan's behaviour during his time as a teacher at a Geneva school.
The letter was addressed to canton Geneva's head of public education and to the president of the cantonal parliament. It referred to Ramadan's time as a teacher at the Collège de Saussure, a secondary school in Geneva, in the 1990s.
Ramadan is accused of having had inappropriate relations with several students whilst teaching there, specifically with minors, as Swiss Public Radio RTS reported on Sunday. The authorities, including the school's head at the time, had allegedly been alerted to the misconduct by several students, but did not take any action against Ramadan, according to RTS. The school's head teacher at the time is now the secretary general of the department of education.
