2 Sinhala undergrads remanded in Colombo

[TamilNet, Friday, 07 August 2009, 10:21 GMT]
Colombo Chief Magistrate, Nishantha Kappurarachchi, Thursday ordered remand for two Colombo University undergraduates till August 12 on charges of writing anti-government slogans on a school parapet wall in Cinnamon Gardens. The suspect-students Upul Premaratne and Gehan Seneviratne were arrested writing the anti-government slogans on a parapet wall of St. Bridget’s Convent in Colombo on Wednesday, according to police allegation.

Sergeants Anura Wijeratne and Weerasena produced the suspects in courts and alleged that the suspects had attempted to incite the public against the government by writing slogans related to problems in the education sector.

Police said they believed that some anti-government elements were attempting to incite the public against the government similar to what happened during 1987-88.

The magistrate refused the bail application on behalf of the undergrads and ordered them to be remanded and asked the police to file their report on August 12.
