PUTRAJAYA – Police today obtained a four-day remand order against two more teachers to assist in the investigation into the leak in the Science and English examination papers in this year’s Primary School Achievement Test (UPSR).
Magistrate Nur Dahlia Azmi issued the order against the men, aged 48 and 51, who were arrested in Kedah, for investigation under Section 8 (1) of the Official Secrets Act (OSA) 1972.
Altogether, 14 people, 12 of them teachers, one an insurance agent and one, an engineer, have been remanded so far to help in the probe into the leak.
After the leak was detected, English papers 014/1 and 014/2 were cancelled after pupils had sat for the papers last Thursday, while the examination for the Science 018, 028 and 038 papers was postponed before students could sit for them on the same day.
