Stop meddling in campus politics- Umno Youth

By The Star,31/1/2002

KUALA LUMPUR: The DAP has objected to Umno Youth submit- ting the names of students and lecturers allegedly involved in campus politics to the Education Ministry as it claimed it is tantamount to interference.

DAP national publicity bureau secretary Gobind Singh Deo said its regular allegation of lists and threats to expose both lecturers and students for their involvement in political activities at the campuses were an infringement of their fundamental rights.

"Umno Youth has no business making people feel that they are not worthy if they support the opposition,'' he said in a statement.

Gobind Singh was commenting on a move by Umno Youth to submit lists of such lecturers and students.

Education bureau chairman Dr Adham Baba said the list of lecturers had been submitted to the Education Ministry together with a memorandum while the student list would be next following the discovery of eight university students for "spying'' at a Barisan operations centre during the Indera Kayangan by-election.

Gobind Singh said Umno Youth had no right to assume the role of caretakers of the Government at university -level politics.
"There are lawful organisations in this country empowered by law to investigate the matter,'' he said.

He also said that the Constitution provided additional safeguards to persons who were being investigated and these were rights, which should be respected.

"If it has evidence, make it public and give those accused a chance to defend themselves,'' he added.
