Twenty one university students who were arrested for protesting within the University Grants Commission premises were given bail by the Colombo High Court today. The students were advised not to take part in any political activities but continue with their education.
The students were released on a personal bail of Rs.25,000 each. The students were arrested on October 14th for forcibly entering the Higher Education Ministry and damaging state property. (TFT)
..but, they are back to cells again as the Court Registrar has another thought. Come tomorroe, he said!.

Universities are for learning therefore all politics should be banned.
Palitha Silva Monday, 08 November 2010 09:10 AM

The obvious truth is not only these students are taking part in Politics. These institutes (which were setup for protect society, to setup to ensure the peace and everything) is taking part in bloody politics!! Just like wedi bana...

Law should be equal to all, which unfortunately is not the case in Sri Lanka

demon Monday, 08 November 2010 07:38 AM
build the lovers park with most beautiful views as soon as possible...so they won't take part in any political activities...
Wara Monday, 08 November 2010 07:36 AM
...So they need to chase away lecturers and do what they want at universities. If any body want to study, they can go abroad and learn. Universities are for poltics (JVP) only.
Hasitha Monday, 08 November 2010 07:27 AM
They should have left remain in the prison! Why are they released again to make all the trouble again!
sltk2004 Monday, 08 November 2010 07:10 AM
I think the problem here should not about taking part in political activity, but on unlawful entry and damages to public property.
Does this mean that as long as you are not doing if for a political reason, you could get away with unlawful entry and damaging public property ?
Tintin Monday, 08 November 2010 06:52 AM
University students are not kids. Come on!
lankaputha Monday, 08 November 2010 06:24 AM
if you think about the reality, can supreme court give any advice like that to any person, asking them not to take part in politics. Where is the democracy. This is a fundamental right of any person, involving in politics.
My worry is, who asked the judge to advice. I take that as an advice if it was like, do not invlove in destructive politics.
