JTC students’ boycott of lectures continues

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 25 August 2009, 05:11 GMT]
The boycott of lectures launched by the students of Jaffna Technical College (JTC) 18 August in protest against alleged malpractices by the JTC principal continues up to Monday, sources in Jaffna said. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Intelligence Unit had arrested some representatives of the student union alleging that they were supporters of Liberation Tigers but had released them due to students’ agitation after detaining the arrested students for a night, the sources added.

The principal of JTC is alleged to have misappropriated various funds allocated to JTC including millions of rupees given as aid to to JTC by Korean government.

JTC students also allege that the principal had used the college as the office of ruling Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) during the recently held Jaffna Municipal Council (JMC) election and to have forced the students to paste wall posters in support of the SLFP candidate.

The students, though present at the college, continue to boycott lectures.

JTC student union representatives said that their boycott will continue until they receive a just solution for the existing problems.

The Intelligence Unit personnel continue to intimidate the student representatives even after releasing them, the student representatives said.
