Court disallows application of Tamil student detainee to sit A/L exam
[TamilNet, Friday, 06 August 2010, 16:53 GMT]
Akkaraippattu Magistrate Friday refused permission to a Tamil youth to
sit the Advanced Level as he was detained under the Prevention of
Terrorism Act (PTA). The youth, A. Suthaharan, arrested April last year, is
detained in Batticaloa prison.
Suthaharan had applied to sit for the General Certificate of Education (GCE) Advanced Level examination that is to commence this week and the
Department of Examination has allowed him sit the examination.
The court had given the reason for the refusal that the
applicant-student had been detained under the P.T.A.
