IUSF To File FR Petition

Jun 21, 2011 10:18:34 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The Inter University Students Federation (IUSF) says that a fundamental rights petition would be filed before the Supreme Court on behalf of the students from the Sri Jayewardenepura University who are currently in CID custody following their arrest last week.

The IUSF says that a compliant would also be filed with the Human Rights Commission (HRC) about the illegal arrest of three first year students at the University.

Three students from the Sri Jayewardenepura University were arrested by the police for allegedly conspiring against the state and are currently being held by the CID.

IUSF Convener Sanjeewa Bandara told a press conference that the arrest of the university students would be raised both locally and internationally.
