US accused student wins top MBA award at Canadian University

[TamilNet, Thursday, 29 May 2008, 01:56 GMT]
Called role model by Professors and peers, Suresh Sriskandarajah, an MBA student at Wilfrid Laurier University in Canada who is facing charges of "terrorism and links to Liberation Tigers," won a prestigious "entrepreneurial student" award which carries a monetary value of $5000. The criteria for selection includes academic performance and student need, the campus newspaper CordWeekly said.

“The university recognizes the principle in law of the presumption of innocence,” explained Kevin Crowley, Associate Director of Public Affairs at Laurier, the paper said.

“As long as there’s no immediate danger to surrounding students, the university assumes that the allegations are just allegations,” Mr Crowly added.

Dean of the School of Business and Economics (SBE) and Chair of the SBE Award Committee Ginny Dybenko said that he was selected because he met the strict criteria and was weighed fairly against the other candidates, according to the campus paper.

“He’s just been an exemplary role model on all levels,” the paper quoted Dybenko as saying.
