Heartly College students disappointed with SLMM
Students at Heartly College, Jaffna expressed their disappointments at the actions of the Sri Lankan Monitoring Mission (SLMM) today.
Student sources said that they intercepted a SLMM vehicle and made complaints while they were being attacked by Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers. Although the SLMM officials had witnessed the attacks they failed to take any action. The attacks by the SLA continued after the SLMM left the site.
“Arbitrary attacks on students at school premises is not permitted by the CFA. SLMM should have acted to halt the barbaric acts of the army.” a student at the prestigious school said.
