Student activist Asheeq Ali Sethi Alivi has filed an application for his legal challenge against Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia to be heard by the same judge slotted to hear a similar challenge against Universiti Malaya.
Asheeq's lawyer, A Surandra, said the application was made to avoid conflicting judgments between two judges hearing a similar case challenging the constitutionality of the universities' decision to suspend students for their involvement in last August's "Tangkap MO1" rally.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
