If he owns his home directory, you will have trouble stopping him...(if he know a little unix...)

you can always try changing ownership of yyy and choose a group in which mcs is not member then chmod 550 yyy

You should be a super user first, then

$ chmod 000 yyy

Other ways also possible. So let us know if this helped you in accomplishing this task..

Else explain the task clearly, to get a correct solution..

chmod 700 yyy
chown root:sys yyy
