Police: PTPTN protest went against Peaceful Assembly Act

The police will call the organisers of a gathering over a National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) promise at Menara PTPTN at Jalan Yap Kwan Seng in Kuala Lumpur today.

Dang Wangi District police chief Shaharuddin Abdullah said the gathering organised by the Coalition of Malaysian Muslim Students (Gamis) had committed an offence under the Peaceful Assembly Act (APA) 2012.

“No notice was given and action will be taken against the organisers under APA 2012,” he said when contacted here, today.

About 100 students who joined the rally had walked for three kilometres to the PTPTN Tower here, causing traffic congestion.

Meanwhile, Gamis president Muhammad Faizzuddin Mohd Zai also urged PTPTN chairman Wan Saiful Wan Jan to resign for failing to carry out the promise related to PTPTN.

On Nov 17, Wan Saiful reportedly said the agency could not fulfil the promise of deferring repayments for borrowers earning below RM4,000 because they did not want to put PTPTN into financial difficulty.
