Flaming excuses for university fire ‘mysteries’

J Abdul Karim, malaysiakini

I share Bob Teoh's reservations on the Dewan Tunku Canselor fire in Universiti Malaya and the recent fire in Universiti Teknologi Mara. One does wonder about campus security.

Are security personnel only there to rout out students who are agitating for transparency and justice of disciplinary actions? In the past year both students from Universiti Sains Malaysia and Rafzan Ramli of Universiti Teknologi Mara had complaints of campus security's "show of force".

These complaints to Suhakam have not been dealt with satisfactorily. We have not heard of any follow-ups with the vice-chancellors and the education minister on student complaints of disciplinary actions by university authorities.

I think we last heard that Rafzan Ramli's appeal was sent back to UiTM from the ministry and nothing more after that.

Bob Teoh's questions also raise other concerns. I think even the allegedly 'militant students' would not be so foolish as to torch university property and thereby bring attention to themselves.
