MACC nabs lecturer who demanded sex and money to pass students

KUALA LUMPUR: A lecturer at a private international university who allegedly demanded sex and money from his students in return for better grades has been arrested by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

The man, a foreigner in his 40s who lectures in Cyberjaya, was arrested at about 5pm after a victim lodged a report with the MACC.

It is learnt the woman, 24, sat for a qualifying exam to enable her to continue her Masters’ degree.

After sitting for her papers, she was allegedly approached by her lecturer who told her she did not do well in her exam.

He then allegedly told her that he could help her provided she agreed to give in to his demands.
He was said to have initially asked her for sexual favours but when she refused, he demanded money as well if she wanted to pass the exam.

The lecturer was also said to have uttered words that caused the woman to be fearful.
MACC director of investigations Datuk Mohd Shukri Abdull confirmed the arrest but declined to elaborate.

Meanwhile, in Parliament, in his written reply to a question by N. Gobalakrishnan (PKR — Padang Serai), Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz said the MACC has concluded two investigations into alleged money politics involving Malacca Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam.

Nazri said the investigation papers would be forwarded to the commission’s legal and prosecution department for a decision.

He added that the case involving a branch chief and Umno Rendang divisional delegates in garnering support for Mohd Ali as the Umno vice-president has been closed.

The case was decided as a ‘no further action’ case and closed on May 25.

In Putrajaya, the MACC arrested two men for making false statements over a housing loan application.

The suspects, aged 31 and 38, were said to have used a false architect’s certificate to apply for a home loan of more than RM152,000 from a bank.

They were detained in Kelantan.
