SL government sabotages IUSU activities in Jaffna

[TamilNet, Friday, 15 October 2010, 05:36 GMT]
Inter University Students Union (IUSU) representatives accused Sri Lanka government and the Intelligence Unit of Sri Lanka Amy (SLA) for sabotaging their activities in Jaffna peninsula. Jaffna Municipal Council (JMC) administration had cancelled its permission for a film show that was to be held in Nalloor Naavalar Cultural Hall on 15, 16 October by the Socialist Youth Organization (SYO), an organ of IUSU, instigated by Sri Lanka government, the representatives said. Meanwhile, SYO representatives alleged that SLA intelligence unit men had attacked Uthila Premaratne, the president of IUSU and stolen his phone and camera in Koappaay in Jaffna Tuesday as he was returning to Colombo after holding a press meet in Jaffna town.

Uthila Premaratne had announced that a demonstration demanding the release of young men and women of the North detained by Sri Lanka government or gone missing is to be held in Jaffna, in the press meet.

Sri Lanka Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officers had interrogated the media men and local daily reporters who attended the press meet.

It is also alleged that the CID officers had intimidated the owner of the lodge where the IUSU group are staying in, media sources in Jaffna said.

JMC administration which had granted permission for the film show on payment had suddenly revoked it, SYO representatives said.

The film show was intended to gather support for SYO among the Jaffna University students and the youths of Jaffna peninsula.
