Eastern University reopens

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 20 March 2007, 00:17 GMT]
The academic activities of the Eastern University of Sri Lanka (EUSL) resumed Monday after nearly three months of closure, the Acting VC, Dr. N. Pathmanathan said. The university was closed follwoing the abduction of its Vice Chancellor (VC), Prof. S. Ravindranath, on December 15 in Colombo.

The campus was re-opened 30 January anticipating the release of the VC after the University Grants Commission accepted his resignation.

However, the university was closed again the following day, after a claymore explosion near the campus premises. A number of students and staff were arrested.

Nevertheless, the non-academic activities started some days later.

The Deputy Minister of Higher Education, 'Myown' Mustafa set the date for reopening of the university to 19 March, in a high-level meeting held at Swami Vipulanantha Aesthetic Studies Center in Kallady, Batticaloa in latter part of February.

According to this decision, the academic activities of EUSL were started Monday, .
