KUALA LUMPUR: All 14 people detained by police in relation to the Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) Science and English examination papers leak have been released on police bail.

Kuala Lumpur CID chief Senior Asst Comm Gan Kong Meng said those released were 12 teachers, an insurance agent and an engineer and added that the police were now focusing on wrapping up their investigation into the leak of the papers.

The police had earlier recorded statements from 30 individuals to facilitate investigations.

They comprised eight officers from the Examinations Syndicate, 19 teachers, an officer from the Edu­cation Ministry, an engineer and a journalist.

Following the leaks, English papers 014/1 and 014/2 were cancelled after pupils had sat for the papers on Sept 11, while the examinations for the Science 018, 028 and 038 papers were postponed before the pupils could sit for them on the same day.

The Examinations Syndicate has fixed Sept 30 for the pupils to resit the examinations.
