Former UUM student leader suspended for one semester

Utusan Xpress, 28 November 2001

ALOR SETAR Nov 27 - Former president of the Universiti Utara Malaysia Student Representative Council (MPPUUM), Norhelmi Jamil, and another student have been suspended by the university for being involved with unregistered organisations.

Norhelmi, 22, the MPPUUM president for the 2000/2001 session, and Mohd Shazwan Dzulkapli, 22, have been suspended for one semester effective this semester.

UUM Vice-Chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Ahmad Fawzi Mohd Basri said the two were found guilty at a hearing conducted by Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Student Affairs) Associate Prof Dr Mohamed Mustafa Ishak last Nov 7.

A third student, final-year accountancy student Mohd Rizal Mohd Anan, 23, was given a stern warning and fined a maximum RM200 for getting involved in business by managing the SintokDotCom website which organises motivation camps with political undertones, he said today.

Rizal, the MPPUUM deputy president for 1999/2000, was found guilty at a trial conducted by Dr Mohamed Mustafa on Nov 11.

Dr Ahmad Fawzi said Norhelmi, also an accountancy student, had breached the Universities and University Colleges Act 1974 by joining the unregistered Pertubuhan Bertindak Mahasiswa Negara, of which he is vice-president.

Mohd Shazwan, a social science student, is a member of the Gabungan Mahasiswa Islam (Gamis) Northern Region and the president of Ikatan Ikhwan Utara.

"Actually, UUM could have taken stronger actions, including expelling them, because disciplinary actions have been taken against them before.

"But after considering the students' future and their family backgrounds, UUM decided to take action just to make them aware of their mistakes," he said.
