Even Singapore Doesn’t Treat Its Scholars This Special – Malaysian Government To Appeal Against The Sentence Of A Convicted Scholar Paedophile



KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysians have slammed those defending a scholarship student convicted of possessing, making and distributing pornographic images of children in London.

On Apr 30, Nur Fitri Azmeer Nordin was sentenced to five years in jail after being found with more than 30,000 images and videos of child pornography. The 23-year-old “math genius” was a student at the prestigious Imperial College London, on a now suspended study loan from Malaysian government agency Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA).

MARA has since told local news outlet The Star that it will give Nur Fitri a “second chance” to continue his studies at any MARA institution in Malaysia upon his release. However, it has stated that he has to pay back his study loan.

On Monday (May 4), the Minister of Rural and Regional Development Mohd Shafie Apdal reportedly told local media that it may consider appealing for a lighter sentence for Nur Fitri as well.

The reports have been met with outrage by Malaysians on social media.

In a statement, MARA says Nur Fitri could be deported back to Malaysia within the next three to four weeks.
