Inter University Students Federation IUSF Convenor Wasantha Mudalige further remanded until January 31 by Fort Magistrates Court.
Mudalige was arrested by the police on 18 August and the Ministry of Defense authorized the police to detain and interrogate them under the Prevention of Terrorism Act.
Meanwhile, Amnesty International South Asia says that Sri Lankan authorities must immediately drop the baseless terror related charges against Wasantha Mudalige and other protesters. Also requests to repeal the prevention of terrorism act (PTA) and end its use. They further demand to review the detention of others held under the PTA, ensuring adequate access to fair bail hearings, and immediate release for all those not facing internationally recognizable charges.
