UDUL PREMARATNE, CONVENOR OF IUSF, REMANDED AGAIN
November 12, 2010: Udul Premaratne, Convenor of the Inter University Students’ Federation (IUSF), was refused bail for the second occasion today by the Colombo Magistrate Rashmi Singappuli.
Lawyers appearing on behalf of Udul Premaratne told court that he had been invited to attend an international youth council to be held in South Africa. As their client had not committed an offence, the lawyers requested that Premaratne be granted bail.
The magistrate, observing that the reasons submitted were not sufficient to grant bail, remanded Premaratne further.
Meanwhile, the 21 university students, arrested and enlarged on bail, appeared before court today.
Attorney at law K. V. Thavarasa, pointing out that the offence allegedly committed by students is not mentioned anywhere in the B Report submitted by police, requested that they be released of their charges.
That request too was refused by the magistrate.

UP is a JVP hardcore activist. He was not an under-graduate, in the true sense, with the objective of getting a free University education and a degree, to find employment and serve the nation. He followed no university lectures. He planted himself in the university hostels among the university students and remained there for several years. He infiltrated the university on JVP instructions to form radical inter-university student movements to stir-up riots, to sabotage the government’s programme of fast-track economic development. This is JVP tactic of ’71, ’88/’89 to create anarchy in the country, to topple the government of the day, and seize power to carry out radical marxist rule. By such anarchy, it is the people who suffer. Youths misled by JVP sacrificed their lives for a useless cause. Parents made many sacrifices to send these youths to universities to gain a degree and find good employment. But it was, ‘gangata ini kepuva’.
Today, people have realised that JVP are foreign-funded enemies of the nation who work to the agenda of the foreign imperialist enemies. These enemies are, diaspora LTTE Tamils, Norway, Britain and USA chiefly. They have vested interests in toppling the MR government. JVP is just one of their catspaws. The other enemy within is TNA. We have also the LTTE hardcore cadres and supporters who managed to flee. They are now keeping a low-profile and living as ordinary citizens to re-surface when the order comes to re-mobilise, to capture power for the Tamil nationalists. JVP is a tool of this bigger conspiracy.
Our Defence Secretary must keep the Defence Forces ever on the alert, to search and destroy these enemies of the nation. They are from all the three main communities. The War of Liberation has only begun. We have eliminated the LTTE. There are other enemies to be eliminated. They will rise up, wave after wave unceasingly, to achieve their objectives. They too have to be eliminated. The War of Liberation goes on. True independence from the imperialist West has yet to be achieved.
As always, Mr Dias is barking up the wrong tree.
The JVP is a sinhala nationalist movement. This is demonstrated by their unwavering commitment to elimination of the tamil nationalist movement, the LTTE.
The rise of nationalist movements is caused by social discrimination. The JVP in the past took up arms due to the severity of social discrimination in the south. Likewise, the LTTE took up arms due to the severity of the threat to the tamil community. In each instance, the rulers opted to crush the rebellions with military might.
Peace will dawn in SL when the rulers identify the causes for the rise in nationalist movements and address those causes in a democratic and participatory manner.
If not, the country will continue moving from from one rebellion to another as had occured in the post independance history of SL.
A human being is not born in this world to be the enemy of another.
JVP is an anarchist movement. It takes up lost causes such as nationalism, socialism in order to gain power. Recently, it poisoned SF against MR in order to try to gain power through his military back-up. But that also failed miserably. They are now totally bankrupt. They have been utterly rejected by the people. JVP has now fallen back on their old game of rousing up a few university students by indoctrinating them with socialist propaganda. They came to Jaffna recently to try to rouse-up the Tamil nationalism against MR government, for another military adventurism. The question is whether the majority Tamils reject the JVP or accept it. TNA and JVP may even form a strange alliance just to topple MR government. They are strange bed fellows but will tolerate each other just to gain their ends, each with their own objectives.
