COLOMBO (News 1st) – 12,000 affidavits signed seeking the release of Wasantha Mudalige, the convener of the Inter-University Student's Federation who remains in remand custody under the Prevention of Terrorism Act, were handed over to the Attorney General on Monday (30).
Student activists from the Inter-University Student's Federation along with activists from Mass Organizations visited the Attorney General's Department on Monday (30) morning to hand over 12,000 affidavits that were signed seeking the release of Wasantha Mudalige
These 12,000 affidavits claim that the signees were also engaged in the public protests that took place since March 2022 to bring about change by ending a corrupt and inefficient governance that burdened the people with a failed economy.
The signees also claim they were involved in the protests that took place on the 9th of July 2022.
They also note that the Inter-University Student's Federation was just one organization among many that took part in those protests, and that Wasantha Mudalige is just one student leader who took part in the demonstrations.
These 12,000 affidavits claim that they too should be treated in the same manner as Wasantha Mudalige.
The group attempted to hand over these affidavits from the back entrance to the Attorney General's Department, however, those attempts were futile.
Thereafter, two representatives were allowed to enter the Attorney General's Department and the affidavits were taken inside the using a Police Jeep.
"If Wasantha Mudalige is a terrorist for his involvement in the Aragalaya, then the millions who joined the protests are also terrorists. That means Wasantha Mudalige is the leader of the largest terror group in the world that has millions of members," said Attorney Nuwan Bopage who has been active with the protests along with the IUSF.
