Ex-Students Rusiah, Calvina, Nur Natasha's Victory Has Reset Malaysia’s Trajectory For Justice, Unity, And Progress

The oppressive culture of fear against children and Ministry teachers has lost its power.

Malaysia will unite to turn on the lights. Tiada.Guru brought 20+ CSOs, Saiful Nizam (father of Ain Husniza), and former Batu Kawan MP Kasthuri Patto to show the Federal Government how to save Malaysia’s heroes in every district and every Ministry: whistleblowers are a Government’s best friend.

Whistleblowers act instead of promising. Whistleblowers risk their lives to ensure the Government follows its own laws.  Malaysians everywhere, but especially in rural communities have lost decades of progress because of internal investigations and internal enforcement. Please sign the petition to protect Cikgu Nurhaizah.

As MOE whistleblowers, we know that these girls’ stories could have been our stories. What would we expect from a Ministry led by human dignity? What would we know if the Ministry turned the other cheek even when presented with clear and confirmed abdication of the law? Malaysians will no longer tolerate corruption.

“Turn On the Lights” Engagement Sessions

The Tiada.Guru Campaign’s fight against corruption, abuse of power, anti-whistleblower attacks, and the culture of fear at Malaysia’s Education Ministry continues in full force. As a whistleblower-led organisation, Tiada.Guru requests engagement sessions with the Federal Government to implement clear, effective, and popular reforms including all Federal MPs and:

  1. Ministers of Law & Institutional Reform: Azalina Othman Said (BN-UMNO) and Ramkarpal Singh Karpal Singh (PH-DAP)
  2. Ministers of Education: Fadhlina Sidek (PH-PKR) and Lim Hui Ying (PH-DAP)
  3. Parliamentary Select Committee Nation Building, Education and Human Resource Development: Saifuddin Abdullah (PN-BERSATU)

The critical reforms to fast-track effective change on the ground, especially but not only in rural communities, include broad and independent whistleblower protection, an independent and hard-hitting Public Ombudsman, and a humanising and critical education curriculum. Malaysians are ready to punish apathetic political parties and tried-and-failed policies that cannot deliver tangible, fast-acting, and serious reforms.

What is next

  1. A short-term, government-wide whistleblower protection policy that does not exclude witnesses of legal and disciplinary cases, to reverse the loophole of Ministry of Education’s April 2023 policy (see 6.3.7, 6.3.8). Enough is enough.
  2. Initiation of police and / or MACC criminal investigations as reported by Nurhaizah Ejab and Siti Nafirah Siman (2018 Plaintiff) in High Court testimony against multiple Ministry of Education officers, agents, and Defendants. These include death threats & fabrication.
  3. Initiation of any, if at all, appropriate disciplinary action against responsible negligent officers that had been stationed at SMK Taun Gusi, Kota Belud Education District Department, the Sabah State Education Department, and the Ministry of Education up until July 2023. We highlight SMK Taun Gusi Principal Hj Nuzie Balus, named in the High Court’s injunction vs the MOE.
  4. The 2018 trial of Plaintiff Siti Nafirah continues on 16-18 August and 28-30 August 2023. No teachers will be offered any whistleblower protection for any testimony regarding the actions of D1 Jainal Jamran and D2 Suid Hanapi, or any other MOE employee involved in this multi-year scandal.
