Inter University Federation Students stage a protest in Colombo this afternoon despite a court ruling : Video
Inter University Federation students engaged in a protest march in Colombo today despite a court ruling against it.
Having considered a motion filed by Cinnamon Gardens Police, High Court No.1 of Hulftsdorp ordered the Inter University Students Federation and Allied Health Science Degree Association yesterday to not hold protests or protest marches on Deans Road, Lipton Circus, Dharmapala Mawatha, Colpetty junction, Green Parth, Bauddhaloka Mawatha, Galle Road, Cinnamon Garden and Slave Island areas.
The Court also informed the two groups to hold such protests if necessary opposite the Fort Railway Station and in other areas without disturbing day to day activities of the general public.
However students began their protest march opposite the University Grants Commission despite police informing them of the court ruling.
