UPSR leak: Three police reports lodged

Three police reports have been lodged over the leaked Ujian Penilaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) papers. Kuala Lumpur CID chief Senior Asst Comm Gan Kong Meng said the reports were lodged in Putrajaya and another in Johor.

“We are investigating all the reports made.

“So far, we have recorded the statements of three persons of interest in the case,” he said when contacted on Friday.

Asked on the Education Ministry’s statement that hotspots and suspects involved in the leak has been identified, SAC Gan said police were still working on the location and the suspects involved.
“We are investigating the matter under Section 8 of the Official Secrets Act 1972.

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission issued a statement saying that it was ready to assist if there was any element of corruption or bribery in the incident.

The Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission said it was aware of the matter. The police report was lodged by a senior Malaysian Examinations Board official.
