Japura Students Leaders 15 years ban cut down to 2 years
Sri Jayewardenepura University administration has decided to shorten the earlier 15-year ban imposed on student leaders, to two years.
The decision was taken after considering a report filed by a disciplinary committee, which conducted a special inquiry.
Students have been informed the inquiry for the 30 Management and Arts students, who were also banned from attending lectures, will be conducted next week.
The university authorities banned the main student union and some other individual faculty unions, and also cancelled the student membership of 11 more undergraduates. A group of over 1,500 undergraduates of the university staged a peaceful protest march from the university premises to Nugegoda town on Wednesday (26), demanding that issues related to student welfare and the curbing of student rights and the suspension of students be removed.
