Mr. Tam requested me to get the approval of Academic Committee (AC). He said if AC approved the scheme, he would approve it.
I approached some members of the AC to garner their support. Though I garnered enough members to support the scheme, they had the reservation that Mr. Tam would not honor the decision despite the promise. They asked me to get a written confirmation from Mr. Tam that he would honor the decision before casting their votes.
When I approached Mr. Tam for the written confirmation, he didn’t give me the confirmation and rather approved the scheme straightaway verbally.
