disagree  John Fossey: This is incorrect. Le comité a été saisi par Prof X means Prof X has brought a matter before the committee, not taken it over!

this is not right


Explanation:
the committee has not been taken over!!!

'saisir une autorité' means to take a case to an authority (committee, court, judge etc.)

this is in no way the same as to take over a committee.....
