Sabaragamuwa University Student activist allowed to sit exam

The Supreme Court yesterday set aside the restriction imposed on a student union activist suspended from sitting for the the final examination for the third academic year in the Sanaragamuwa University and granted interim relief in allowing the applicant to sit for the examination.
The petitioner is Madawala Liyanage Sampath Kumara. The respondents cited are Vice Chancellor of the university and 18 others. The petitioner alleges that university authorities have imposed continuous restrictions on students union activities by way of arbitrary by laws. Furthermore , the university authorities have imposed restrictions on student meetings stipulating that such meetings could be held only once a week.

The petitioner prays for a writ of certiorari quashing the decision suspending him from the examination. Furthermore, to grant a writ of mandamus directing the respondents to allow the petitioner to sit for the examination. To issue an interim order directing the respondents to allow the petitioner to sit for the examination. Extract from DailyNews
