The Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court today ordered those who are protesting against the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine (SAITM) to refrain from entering any state institution or cause inconvenience to the public.

The five-day protest march carried out by the ‘SAITM Virodi Sisu-Jana Vyaparaya’ demanding the SAITM  be abolished will reach Colombo this afternoon, the Medical Student's Action Committee (MSAC) said.

MSCA Convener Ryan Jayalath told the Daily Mirror that close to 4000 protestors will arrive in Colombo around 3.30 pm today and that they were in Kiribathgoda at the moment.

“The final destination of the protest march has not been confirmed yet,” he added.

The protest march commenced from Kandy on Monday (July 31). (Kalathma Jayawardhane)

    Some one should be financing this march - An army marches on its stomach - This saying, which attests to the importance of forces being well-provisioned, has been attributed to both Napoleon and Frederick the Great

    What a joke they tear these court orders some time in front of the camera. Judiciary has become a joke of this country. If this parades were held under mara they would have got the taste of batons wielded by the goons of Kahandagana and duminda.
