SC Postpones Leadership Training Programme

May 20, 2011 11:43:14 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The Supreme Court has directed the Attorney General to postpone the government’s proposed leadership training programme for new entrants to universities by a week.

The Court has ordered the Attorney General to inform the relevant authorities to postpone for one week mandatory leadership training program run by the Defence Ministry in military camps.

The leadership training was to be started on May 23.

A Supreme Court bench comprising Justices K. Sripavan, Chandra Ekanayaka, and Suresh Chandra has issued the directive after considering the fundamental rights petition filed by the Inter University Students’ Federation (IUSF) and the Students for Human Rights.

The Higher Education Ministry has announced that all new entrants to universities would have to attend a newly formulated leadership training programme that would be conducted by the Defence Ministry at military camps.

Further hearing of the petition was postponed to May 24.
