UM: Student barred from convocation ceremony as he posed a threat to public order


PETALING JAYA: Universiti Malaya (UM) has defended its decision to bar an accountancy graduate from attending a convocation ceremony, saying that he posed a threat to public order. UM said they had tightened security at its convocation ceremonies after student activist Wong Yan Ke staged a protest, calling for the resignation of the varsity's vice-chancellor, Datuk Abdul Rahim Hashim. The student concerned, Edan Kon Hua En, 23, has since made multiple posts on Facebook after he was barred from attending the ceremony. Kon, a former UM Association of New Youth president, suspected he was barred from the ceremony because he had made a Facebook post in support of Wong's protest.
