Japura University Students Suspended


Eight students have been expelled from the Sri Jayawardenapura University.
Media Spokesperson for the University, Professor Praneeth Abeysundara said that six more students have been suspended.
Prof. Abeysundara added that the administrative council of the university had conducted a disciplinary inquiry into these students based on several complaints.
He noted that the students were penalized for assaulting security officials as well as a professor and fo damaging university property, among other charges.

Meanwhile Convener of the Inter University Students Federation (IUSF) Sanjeewa Bandara said that Sri Lankan government is suppressing students who are against the Bill pertaining to Private Universities,
Sanjeewa further said “For the past three years, students at the Sri Jayewardenepura University have been suppressed, and the administration is working towards suppressing them further. They have suspended four students for three years. Another three students have been given lifetime suspension”.
“The university administration is making baseless allegations against students an order to suspend them from the university. Since Sri Lanka is a democratic country, the government has no right to work towards oppression,” Bandara added. He alleged that three girls have been suspended from the University because they had taken a friend to buy some medicine. “This is not an issue about one’s character but an issue about being humane,” he said, adding, “the steps taken by the Chancellor in this regard are disgraceful and are a blot on the university’s administration. He accused the government of being behind these actions to suppress the students, and charged that the Chancellor had been given a free hand to do as he pleases. 
“We condemn all these actions, and we would like to state that suspending students will not decelerate the progress of student movements,” Bandara declared.

Moratuwa University NDT to Homagama


The Moratuwa University said it would relocate the National Diploma in Technology (NDT) programme to a new location in Homagama.
This step is being taken to prevent further friction between student groups in the university following a recent attack which left some students critically injured and university facilities severely damaged.
Some 700 NDT students are alleged to have attacked students of the Moratuwa University Engineering Faculty on January 16 leading to the Engineering Faculty coming to a standstill.
University Vice Chancellor A.K.W. Jayawardane said the Engineering Faculty would remain closed until further notice and that a project to construct a new university building for the NDT programme would begin soon.
“This is a project that has been in the pipeline for a long time. It is not something that we thought of overnight as a result of the recent clash,” Professor Jayawardene said.
He said the construction project was being carried out at a cost of US$89 million but it was still uncertain when the construction work would be completed.
Prof. Jayawardene said he met the police and the students yesterday to discuss what remedial measures needed to be taken to prevent a repetition of the clash which had cost a huge Rs.1 million in damages to the university premises.
“It is university policy to charge students three times the cost of any damage caused to the university premises. The same policy will be applied here as well. We are in the process of identifying the students who gave leadership to this attack. A police investigation and an internal university investigation are being carried out to identify those responsible for the attack,” he said.
Prof. Jayawardene said an engineering student who suffered severe brain injuries during the clash would be released from hospital today. online-dailymirror

Educational Services Ministry Sri Lanka


Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa introduced a new Educational Services Ministry at yesterday's(January 28) Cabinet reshuffle. Duminda Dissanayake has been appointed Educational Service Minister.
Education sector trade unions in Sri Lanka have criticized the government's move to add another ministry to the sector.
The Ceylon Teachers Union (CTU) says that the newly created Educational Services ministry will be of no use except to utilize funds that would otherwise be allocated for free education in the country.
CTU General Secretary, Joseph Stalin says that now another minister would be maintained by the monies that should be spent on the country's student population.
According to Mr. Stalin, even with so many ministers, deputy ministers and a supervising MP the authorities still muddle national level examinations.
CTU General Secretary, Joseph Stalin told Ceylon Today, "Nothing good will come out of this new ministry. Another minister will now be maintained on the money that should be spent on educating students."
He charged that last year, the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption had received the most number of complaints against those in the education sector.
"With all the corruption that has been going on in education, as well as the repeated failure of the Ministry of Education when it comes to holding examinations, Education Minister Bandula Gunawardane has still been vested with this portfolio. And now a new ministry has been set up as well," Stalin said.
