‘CTA may suppress innocents instead of terrorists’

The Counter-Terrorism Act (CTA) is aimed at naming university students, lecturers, and scholars as terrorists and terrorists as sons and daughters of mother Lanka, Media Spokesman for the Parents’ Union of the Medical Students, Wasantha Alwis, said.

He was addressing the media in Colombo, yesterday evening.

Alwis said the union requested parliamentarians and the public to rally round to defeat the government’s efforts.

Alwis said the union predicted that the government would make use of the suicide attacks to bring the Counter- Terrorism Act and get it passed in Parliament.

“Today it has become a reality. The government is busy weakening military and other intelligence units and deploying them to investigate university students, lecturers, and scholars, while the real terrorists are planning to destroy the country,” he said.
