While the interdictions of three National School principals have triggered protests from past pupils, students and teachers, three more principals have come under the microscope of the Presidential Investigation Unit (PIU) signalling more interdictions soon.
`We have initiated investigations into malpractices and irregularities allegedly done by three leading school principals in the country.
A leading girls` school and a boys` school in Colombo are also in this list,` sources said.
Meanwhile, the Education Ministry is yet to start formal inquiries into charges made against the interdicted principals.
?We are still examining their files to identify children who have been subjected to injustice due to the irregularities and malpractices allegedly done by these principals, ? he said.
A Ministry official said they would start formal inquiries soon but declined to comment further.
