UM forms independent panel to probe 'racist lecturer' claim

Universiti Malaya (UM) has formed an independent panel to investigate allegations that a lecturer had ridiculed Indian students, after the claim went viral recently through the "Suara Pelajar India" Facebook page.

Vice-chancellor Mohd Amin Jalaludin told Malaysiakini that the matter was agreed upon during a meeting yesterday, adding that the independent panel will ensure justice was served without intervention from university management.

"I cannot comment further until the investigations are concluded as the probe is still ongoing, and to ensure impartiality for the lecturer and students involved, I leave it to the panel to handle the matter, with no involvement from UM," he said.
