GEORGE TOWN: The man and two women arrested in connection with the sale of Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) fake degrees have been handed over to the Terengganu police for further investigations.

George Town OCPD Asst Comm Gan Kong Meng said the trio were escorted to the Kemaman police station on Monday, adding that their counterpart had received a report over the fake degree sale.

He was speaking to reporters after receiving 60 bus passes, which were for his men to curb the pickpocketing menace in buses, from Rapid Penang chief operating officer Jamali Soaidin in Lorong Kulit here yesterday.

Meanwhile, only two out of the more than 20 fake USM degree buyers have come forward to lodge reports with the police.

Sources said police had approached the buyers, who were identified from the list provided by the three suspects, but most of them refused to come forward.

“The police will not hesitate to use Section 111 of the Criminal Pro­cedure Code to compel them to give their statements.”
