Adskillige folkelige organisationer, herunder anerkendte studenter-grupperinger i Jaffna-distriktet, har klaget over henstillingen fra generalmajor Susil Chandrapala, Sri Lankas kommandør for Jaffna-området, til Sri Lankas Menneskerets Kommission om at standse studenters deltagelse i arrangementer, organiseret af Tamil Eelam’s Befrielsestigre (LTTE), udtalte civile kilder.

Studenter Unionen ved Jaffna Universitet (JUSU) meddelte SLA i en erklæring, udsendt torsdag, at de ikke har nogen moralsk ret til at hindre studenterne i at deltage i LTTE’s organiserede arrangementer. Erklæringen tilføjede, at det er hyklerisk af SLA at søge hjælp fra menneskeretsgruppen for at begrænse studenters frivillige aktiviteter samtidig med, at de har besat adskillige skoler og lægger restriktioner på studenternes bevægelsesfrihed.

Erklæringen anklagede også SLA for at krænke grundlæggende menneskerettigheder ved ikke at tillade internt fordrevne forældre at vende tilbage til deres egne landsbyer bag højsikkerheds-zonernes kontrolposter.

Uddannelsen af tamilske børn er blevet påvirket negativt i områder i nærheden af højsikkerheds-zoner gennem SLA’s besættelse. Eleverne kommer til skolerne fra flygtningelejre. SLA tillader ikke deres forældre at vende tilbage til deres huse og dyrke deres landbrugsjord, udtalte erklæringen.

JUSU citerede to førende skoler, Tellipalai Unions Gymnasium og Tellipalai Mahajana Gymnasium, hvor eleverne undervises under umådelige vanskeligheder uden bevægelsesfrihed og under andre lignende vanskeligheder på grund af besættelsen og tilstedeværelsen af hærens soldater i nabolaget. Undervisningen er også blevet besværliggjort gennem SLA’s lærerindskrænkninger.

JUSU erindrede Jaffna-områdets kommandør for SLA om, at soldater, der tilhørte den srilankanske hær, var ansvarlige for drabene på studenterne Krishanty Kumarasamy og Sanjeevan. Krishanthy’s moder, broder og en nabo blev også dræbt af soldaterne ved samme checkpoint, udtalte studenterne.
