More than 400,000 PTPTN borrowers taken out of blacklist — PTPTN chairman

KUALA LUMPUR (June 26): The names of 429,945 borrowers of the National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) have been removed from the Immigration blacklist since May 24, said its chairman Wan Saiful Wan Jan.

He said “whitening” process of the borrowers’ names was completed last June 8, a week earlier than expected.

“This is made to fulfil the 100-day pledge made by the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government to fulfil its manifesto made during the 14th General Election.


“However, those whose names have been taken out of the Immigration blacklist are advised to continue to make their study loan repayments,” he told a press conference here today.

To that effect, he said, borrowers who had been barred from travelling abroad  were now free to travel and the PTPTN counter at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport 2 (KLIA 2) would be closed down, effective July 1.

Wan Saiful is the new PTPTN chairman, replacing  Datuk Shamsul Anuar Nasarah.

The consistent repayment of the education loans by the borrowers will ensure they do not have outstanding payments and a clean record in the Central Credit Reference Information System (CCRIS).

CCRIS is a centralised system developed by Bank Negara to gather and store all data on debts by individuals or companies with banks or other financial institutions  and used as reference by all financial institutions or credit providers in Malaysia.

Wan Saiful said that besides having a clean CCRIS record,  PTPTN borrowers who made early settlement could have access to an ujrah loan of one per cent (a syariah-compliant education loan).

He said they would also enjoy a 20 per cent discount for full payment or 10 per cent for 50 per cent settlement.

On the PH manifesto to defer payment of the PTPTN loan for all borrowers earning less than RM4,000 a month, Wan Saiful said the borrowers would have to continue paying the loan until an announcement on the matter by PTPTN  in August.

Substantial reduction of govt debt in next few months — PM Mahathir

June 28, 2018 16:47 pm +08

KUALA LUMPUR (June 28): The government is hopeful of a substantial reduction in the amount of government debt within the next few months, said Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

He said since taking over as prime minister, his government had cancelled a number of costly projects which contributed to the overall debt reduction.

"Trying to reduce debt is a tough job, but we have cancelled a number of costly projects," he said at the American Malaysian Chamber of Commerce luncheon here today.

He said the government’s efforts at improving the financial situation and economy of the country, however, was not being taken positively by foreign investors, leading to a capital outflow.

"Sometimes, I feel the market prefers to be told lies on how good we are, rather than the truth," he added.

The prime minister emphasised the government's business friendly policy and need for closer collaboration between the public and private sectors.

"We want to work closely with the private sector, which means, of course, we will be accessible to it," he said.

Dr Mahathir also said the government is open to ideas and constructive comments from the private sector to help improve the delivery process of the public sector.

"I can assure you that when criticised or told we are doing something wrong, we will do our best to correct it," he added.

He said the intention of the government is to facilitate the growth of the private sector, which is the engine of wealth for the country.

The prime minister emphasised the government's business friendly policy and need for closer collaboration between the public and private sectors.

"We want to work closely with the private sector, which means, of course, we will be accessible to it," he said.

Massive overhaul in PM's Dept with MACC, EC among agencies placed under Parliament
Sunday, 1 Jul 2018

PETALING JAYA: A total of nine government agencies will operate as independent entities beginning Sunday (July1), and will report directly to Parliament.

Among the agencies are the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), the Election Commission (EC), the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (Suhakam), the Public Prosecutor's Office and the National Audit Department.

This is just part of the massive overhaul of the Prime Minister's Department.

The Public Service Commission, Education Service Commission and the Judicial Appointments Commission will also report directly to Parliament, which will be an independent entity.


In a June 26 letter addressed to the Prime Minister's Department sighted by The Star, Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Dr Ali * approved the abolition of 10 departments and agencies including 19 other smaller divisions or offices under the Prime Minister's Office.

It also includes the merging of five agencies and the redesignation of 40 agencies.

The country's special envoy on Infrastructure to India and South Asia Tun S. Samy Vellu will have his services terminated after his contract expires at the end of the year.

The special envoy post is with ministerial rank.

The office, including that of the Special Envoy to China, will also be abolished. Tan Sri Ong Ka Ting had relinquished his post as the special envoy in January.

Tan Sri Dr Rais Yatim, who was the Socio-Cultural Advisor to the Government, also had his services ended on Saturday (June 30), along with the expiry of his contract.

As expected, the Land Public Transport Commission (SPAD) has been abolished and its functions absorbed by the Transport Ministry.

Others abolished included the National Professors Council, the National Innovation Agency, the Special Implementation Task Force, Civil Service Delivery Unit (CSDU) and the 2050 National Transformation (TN50) secretariat.

Meanwhile, the Attorney General's Chambers is still under the Prime Minister's Department but its prosecuting functions have been placed under the Public Prosecutor's Office.

The Legal Aid Department and Insolvency Department will also be merged with the Law and Judiciary Ministry.

Hafiz Yatim  |  Published: 11 Jul 2018, 9:45 pm  |  Modified: 11 Jul 2018, 11:45 pm

A+      A-

Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak Richard Malanjum took his oath of office as the new chief justice tonight.

He is the first person from the Borneo states to be appointed to the highest judicial post in the country.

Chief Judge of Malaya Ahmad Ma'arop has been elevated to the post of Court of Appeal president.

They were sworn in before the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V.

Meanwhile, Justice Zaharah Ibrahim will replace Justice Ahmad as the Chief Judge of Malaya, and Justice David Wong Dak Wah will be the new Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak.

Chief Justice Md Raus Sharif and Court of Appeal president Zulkefli Ahmad Makinudin, who are supposed to retire on July 31, had been asked to vacate their post effective today, according to a source.

This came after as the Malay rulers had their conference beginning today.

Justice Malanjum, 65, is the first from the Kadazandusun community in Sabah to be appointed as the Chief Judge of Sabah and Sarawak and he was the youngest to be elevated to the Federal Court in 2005 at the age of 52.

He will reach the retirement age of 66 in October this year but his term can be extended for another six months, until April next year.

At present, Malanjum is the most senior Federal Court judge.

Earlier today, he downplayed speculation of him being nominated as the next chief justice.

Second female judge as CJM

Justice Ahmad, 65, who hails from Malacca, was appointed a judicial commissioner in 2000. He was elevated to the Court of Appeal in 2007 and then promoted to the Federal Court in 2011.

Last year, he became the Chief Judge of Malaya.

Justice Zaharah, 65, is the second woman to hold the post of Chief Judge of Malaya, after Siti Norma Yaakob.

She was appointed as judicial commissioner of the High Court in 2004, elevated to the Court of Appeal in 2010 and then to the apex court in 2015.

Wong, 64, from Sarawak, was appointed as a judicial commissioner at the Kuching High Court in 2005.

He was then elevated to the Court of Appeal in 2013 and became a Federal Court judge earlier this year.
