Jaffna undergrads in attention drawing protest yesterday – Educational activities to start on Monday

Students of the Jaffna University engaged in an attention drawing protest yesterday in front of the University premises. The protest was undertaken to demand that the Student Federation president, Secretary and the Canteen operator who were unjustifiably arrested following a search in the University, in the wake of the Easter Bombings, be fully acquitted.

Following the Competent Authority of the University claiming joint responsibility for the arrests made within the Campus and promising that he will stand by students struggles and do the needful to release the arrested as soon as possible, they have decided to temporarily  abandon the boycott of classes and the classes will re-start on Monday.

They also said that they will resume boycott and undertake several democratic struggles if the full acquittal of the arrested is not possible through their current efforts.
