LUMUT – The Malaysian Examinations Board (MEB) will lodge a police report later today so that the authorities can investigate an allegation that a syndicate is involved in the ‘sale’ of Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) 2016 examination papers.
Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid said the ministry (MOE) takes a serious view of the allegation and will not hesitate to take legal action against the newspaper if the allegation is proven to be false.
“This is a serious matter. I urge the police to investigate so that we can prosecute those who make the allegation.
“So far, there is no such thing (the syndicate as alleged),” he told reporters after a working visit to SMK Ahmad Boestamam, Sitiawan, today.
Yesterday, the China Press newspaper alleged the existence of a syndicate ‘selling’ SPM 2016 examination papers and that some senior officers of the MOE were involved. – BERNAMA
