Jaffna Uni. Vice Chancellor removed

Jaffna University Vice Chancellor Ratnam Wigneswaran has been removed from his position from yesterday (06), says the University Board.

The Board stated that although Wigneswaran received a letter to resign from his post, no new vice chancellor has been appointed.

When Vigneswaran was questioned, he said that he was unable to comment on the matter and that he had received a letter from the Additional Secretary to the President regarding the removal from the position.

The Chairman and the Secretary of the Students Union of University of Jaffna was taken into custody recently when they were keeping photographs of the late LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran and Anton Balasingham.
