SAITM students to be transferred to Kotelawala Defence University

A decision has been taken to transfer the medical students of the Malabe SAITM medical campus to the Kotelawala Defence University (KDU).

The decision was taken following a meeting with President Maithripala Sirisena today, the President’s media division said.

Protests were staged even today in Colombo against SAITM medical campus.

Students affiliated to Government university student unions have been protesting for several weeks demanding that SAITM be completely abolished. (Colombo Gazette)
