PETALING JAYA: A coalition of student groups, called Kesatuan, has threatened to hold a protest rally against Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) over its decision to reinstate a suspension order on final-year law student Asheeq Ali Sethi Alivi.

Kesatuan spokesperson Anis Syafiqah Yusof gave UKM a week to respond and explain why the suspension has been reinstated.

She said the student groups will hold the rally outside UKM.

On November 2016, Asheeq was suspended for one semester by UKM and fined RM200 for his involvement in the #TangkapMO1 rally.

Asheeq, at that time, had argued that he was never charged in court for any offences.

The rally was organised by a coalition of students and youth groups calling for the arrest of the person named “MO1” in the United States’ Department of Justice’s civil suit related to state investment fund 1MDB. Read more

SHAH ALAM: Aktivis siswa, Asheeq Ali Sethi Alivi memfailkan saman terhadap Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) ekoran tindakan menggantung pengajiannya selepas terlibat dalam perhimpunan #TangkapMO1 pada Ogos lalu.

Mahasiswa jurusan undang-undang tahun ke-3 UKM itu berkata, tindakan tersebut diambil kerana hukuman yang dijatuhkan terhadapnya tidak berasas dan bercanggah dengan Perlembagaan.

“Ia bercanggah dengan Perkara 10 Perlembagaan Persekutuan dan panel perbicaraan UKM juga gagal membuktikan terdapat kes yang kukuh untuk mengambil tindakan.

“Saya mengambil tindakan guaman ini kerana proses rayuan dalaman UKM mengambil masa yang lama, sudah lebih sebulan,” katanya dalam satu kenyataan. Read more
