Report threats to the police, schools told


PETALING JAYA: All security threats aimed at schools and other educational institutions must be reported to the police and the Education Ministry immediately.

The ministry said these institutions also need to comply with instructions issued by the authorities.

“All educational institutions (under the ministry) are requested to comply with the security procedures that have been set,” it said in a statement yesterday.

The ministry added that it was in close collaboration with the police to help ensure the safety of all educational institutions.

This comes as a number of schools nationwide received bomb threats on Tuesday, with further incidents reported on Wednesday. Bomb squads found no evidence of such devices at the schools concerned.

“The ministry takes this issue seriously and always prioritises the safety of teachers, students and all citizens in educational institutions under its purview,” the ministry added.

Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Hussein Omar Khan said the incidents are being investigated.

However, upon being contacted, Comm Hussein said the authorities believed that the threat might be a hoax.
