PETALING JAYA: The authorities should treat the cause and not the symptoms in the matter of tertiary students allegedly using the Sugarbook app to find sugar daddies, say former deputy minister Hannah Yeoh and social activist Syed Azmi Alhabshi.

“We urge the Government to tackle this negative social issue in a more effective manner," Yeoh and Syed Azmi said in a joint statement posted on Yeoh's Facebook on Tuesday (Feb 16).
