Batticaloa Campus returned to founder, ex Governor Hizbullah
Colombo (LNW): The private University in Batticaloa which was acquired by the Sri Lanka Military following controversial reports influenced by the 2019 Easter Sunday attacks has been handed over to its owner, former Governor of the Eastern Province M.L.A.M. Hizbullah.
The university has been handed over on the directive of President Ranil Wickremesinghe in consideration of the request made by Hizbullah, according to reports.
The private University in Batticaloa was taken over by the military four years ago over its alleged ties to the Easter Sunday genocide that took away more than 260 lives, but was released as the investigations had proven that no such links exist.
