Bersih wants UMS to drop disciplinary action against duo
Bersih is urging Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) to drop disciplinary proceedings against two students who had participated in the Bersih 5 rally last year.
"Bersih is extremely disappointed to hear that UMS is following in the footsteps of Universiti Malaya by threatening disciplinary action against two of its students, Mukmin Nantang and Nurul Aqilah Muhammad Zainuzi, for their participation in the Bersih 5 rally last year.
"Bersih strongly urges UMS to stop all disciplinary proceedings against Mukmin and Nurul Aqilah - if not to recognise their rights and freedoms guaranteed by Article 10 of the Federal Constitution, then to perserve the university's reputation as a proper education institution," it said in a statement today.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
