This story in malaysiakini is rather disturbing.
A student has had his life disrupted by the decision of the authorities as according to the report
"Lee was stopped by security guards at the university’s exit and his notebook was seized on grounds that he was being investigated for being a member of an illegal student organisation.
The student initially refused to cooperate because the campus officers were not in their uniforms which led to the university accusing him of obstructing its officers from executing their duty."
They spent 3 hours deliberating on such a minor charge that should probably not have resulted in anything more than a caution.
Now a young man's life is put on hold for one year and maybe his career is also jeopardised.
Was the charge proven that he belonged to an illegal organisation?
Does the UPM have proper procedures for the security guards to follow when they want to check students?
One would imagine that security guards should only be allowed to arrest those taking part in criminal activities like theft, robbery and vandalism and not be authorised to intrude into the private affairs of students.
Perhaps he belonged to the wrong side of the political divide. Do you think the university would have taken such action if he belonged to the BN group?
