 FUTA for students' freedom of expression

FUTA for students' freedom of expression

2012 Dec 02

The Federation of University Teachers Associations (FUTA) said the government had no right to interfere with the ideologies of students while condemning the attack on Jaffna University students.

FUTA spokesperson Dr Mahim Mendis told Digathanews the students should be given the freedom to express themselves and said it should not force them to refrain from doing so.

“The University is a place where thousands of students come together. Their beliefs differ. They have different ideologies. They should be allowed to express themselves for a better understanding,” he said.

He said the FUTA condemned the act of violence against University students adding that it violated of human rights laws by suppressing freedom of expression.
