GOMBAK, 26 September 2016: Just a few days after the Syura meeting to elect the Council for current tenure, the new president of Students Representative Council (SRC) 2016/2017, Amirul Hisham Abdul Rahman, had to face an issue of an international student of IIUM arrested for not having a passport.
“The brother’s passport is actually with EMGS (Education Malaysia Global Services) for visa approval. After hours of waiting, we managed to get help from appropriate departments concerned to help solve the confusion,” Amirul said in his Facebook posting.
The SRC president later said that the international student has been released by the authorities and is safely back in campus.
“We would like to thank everyone who was directly or indirectly involved in attending to the brother’s problem immediately, especially the Rector.” ***
