A prisoner in Batticaloa who had got admission to sit the Advanced Level (A/L) examinations by the Examinations Department was refused permission to sit the exam by the Akaraitpattu judge as he was detained under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA).

The youth, A. Suhirthan, was arrested in April last year and had applied to sit for the examination this year but was today refused permission by the Court. (Daily Mirror online)
