CAPE TOWN - Three UCT students and two others banned from campus have turned down a compromise interdict, which was proposed on Thursday by the Supreme Court of Appeal.

The deal offered them a chance to take part in campus activities if they committed to refraining from taking part in further violent protests at the university.

The institution and the appellants have not been able to reach an agreement, according to the students' lawyer.

This means the Appeal Court will hand down judgment at some future date.
