Lectures resume at Jaffna University

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 22 May 2007, 19:56 GMT]
Activities of Jaffna university resumed Tuesday after the two weeks boycott launched by Jaffna University Student Union was suspended Monday, University officials said. The boycott began as a protest against the abduction of students, death notices to undergrads and staff, intrusion into the campus by armed men and the violations perpetrated by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) and SLA-backed paramilitaries disrupting educational activities in Jaffna peninsula.

The boycott by the peninsula students in protest against the abduction of their fellow students, however, continues with the fate of the four abducted high school students still remains unknown.

Schools in the peninsula including Jaffna Hindu college, the institution where one of the four high school students studied, had very low attendance Tuesday.

Despite pressure exerted from many sections of the society urging the release of the four abducted students nothing positive has resulted, sourced close to Human Rights Commission Jaffna said.
