At the High Court of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

The Tiada.Guru Campaign

In 2015, Siti Nafirah was in Form 4 at SMK Taun Gusi in Kota Belud, Sabah: one of Malaysia's ten poorest districts.

In 2018, she summoned seven parties, from her ex-teacher to the Federal Government. Her Court filings named a months-absent English teacher and detailed threats, witnesses, fabricated records, and a systematic cover-up.

In 2020, three more SMK Taun Gusi students—Calvina, Rusiah, and Nur Natasha—joined Siti Nafirah and filed similar High Court summons.

Ministry of Education whistleblowers founded this Campaign: it is time for pendidikan bersih.

From the Plaintiffs

Read the Plaintiffs' statements to the media. Authorised by their High Court legal teams.

The culture of fear protecting MOE misconduct must end.

What is Tiada.Guru?

  • Led by MOE teacher whistleblowers
  • Not associated with any political party
  • Built on principles of justice, equality
  • Founded in and for rural Sabah, now and forever
  • Anti-corruption, anti-misconduct, anti-fraud
  • Stubbornly committed: litigation is just step one

The plan is simple.

Defeat the Ministry of Education in a public High Court trial. Twice.
Expose Malaysians to the Ministry's misconduct, corruption, and fraud.
End the fear culture vs. child victims and start education for liberation.
Our MOE whistleblowers maintain protected identities.
