Jaffna judge remands students again

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 09 October 2001, 17:53 GMT]
The Sri Lanka Police Tuesday produced Krishnasamy Thivviyan, the Jaffna University undergraduate who has been detained since 2 July, and the Santhiraraj Niroshan, 21, the Kopay Christian College student who was arrested on 18 September before the Jaffna district judge. The judge remanded the both students until 23 October. School students in Kopay in Jaffna were to begin a protest campaign against the arrest and detention of Santhiraraj Wednesday.

Sources said that the two students were produced in court today to pre-empt more protests in Jaffna schools and the University.

Thivviyan was brought to the courts by the Jaffna town Police while Santhiraraj, the grade 10 student of the Kopay Christian College, was produced in court by the Kankesanthurai Police.

K. Thivviyan was formerly a leader of the Jaffna University Student Council.
