All Ceylon Law Students’ Movement launched a protest opposite the Fort Railway Station this morning.
The protest was launched for not providing Tamil and Sinhala translations for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd year examination paper.
They oppose the decision taken by the Council of Legal Education to provide question papers only in English language.
Subsequent to the protest they are due to reach the Presidential Secretariat in a protest march to handover a letter.
We made inquires in this regard from the principal of the law college Dr. Jayatissa de Costa.
He said that they have been issuing question papers only in English for several years.
However he pointed out that the students are given the option of answering in any of the 3 languages.
