PUTRAJAYA,( Sept 18) — Two more teachers were remanded Thursday for four days to assist in the police 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 remand order against the two for the probe under Section 8 (1) of the Official Secrets Act (OSA) 1972.
The two were a woman aged 26, who was arrested in Labis, Johor, and a 31-year-old man who was held in Nilai, Negeri Sembilan.
So far, 12 people have been picked up by the police in connection with the leak, 10 of them teachers, one an insurance agent and one, an engineer.
Following the leak, English papers 014/1 and 014/2 were cancelled after pupils had sat for the papers last Thursday, while the examinations for the Science 018, 028 and 038 papers were postponed before the pupils could sit for them on the same day last week.
The Examinations Syndicate has fixed Sept 30 as the new date for the pupils to sit for the examinations in the two subjects.—BERNAMA
