KUALA LUMPUR: The amount of money owed to the National Higher Education Fund (PTPTN) is RM39bil, which is almost the same as losses incurred by 1Malaysian Development Bhd (1MDB), says Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad (pic).

"That's how much money has not been paid to the Government for what it spent on you to give a good education, and therefore opportunities for a better job and income," he said in his speech during the Malaysian Student Leaders' Summit here Saturday (Aug 11).
