The Inter University Students’ Federation (IUSF) staged a protest in front of the Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) in Colombo yesterday evening (27).
The protesters urged the authorities to release IUSF convener Wasantha Mudalige and Inter University Bhikkhu Federation (IUBF) convener Ven. Galwewa Siridhamma Thera who are detained under the Prevention of Terrorism Act.
They accused the TID of neglecting its responsibilities and endangering the life of Siridhamma Thera when it waited until relatives and human rights activists demanded that he be hospitalized.
A large police presence was there for the duration of the protest.
