Medical Students Arrested

Nov 6, 2010 7:37:39 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The All Ceylon Government Medical Officers’ Association (ACGMOA) says that four of its members have been arrested while distributing leaflets in Matara.

The ACGMOA has condemned the arrest of its activists who were arrested while distributing leaflets against the introduction of private medical universities in the country.
The ACGMOA has charged that while the phones of the medical students who were taken into custody were deactivated, they were questioned by the police for several hours.
According to the Association, a large number of leaflets that were meant to be distributed have also been taken to police custody while the students were threatened not to distribute the leaflets in the future.
