* Sri Lanka's Buddhist movement urges authorities to correct errors in the Law College exam
Fri, Feb 1, 2013, 12:10 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 01, Colombo: The Buddhist activity group in Sri Lanka, Bodu Bala Sena (Buddhist Power Force) movement has said that an error has occurred during the Sinhala translation of the law entrance examination causing injustice to the Sinhala medium students.

The secretary of the ethno-religious movement Ven. Galagodaaththe Gnanasara said yesterday that the Sinhala medium students of the Law College entrance examination faced an injustice due to errors in the examination paper.

He said that the Sinhala medium students had lost 14 marks due to a translation error. Seven questions of the paper given for Sinhala medium students had translation errors, he said at a press conference yesterday.

The organization demanded the government to rectify the problem either by holding the examination again or granting a fair mark to the affected students.

Bodu Bala Sena charged earlier that there was a scandal behind the disproportionate increase of Tamil and Muslim students who passed the law entrance examination and campaigned against the Minister of Justice Rauf Hakeem who is a Muslim.
