Ahead of two street demonstrations this Saturday, the local branch of Monash University warned its students that they will be punished if found to have participated in illegal rallies.
Malay Mail Online sighted a copy of the advisory issued by its registrar Dr Susheela Nair today.
“You are advised not to participate in any illegal gathering/related activity which contravenes Malaysian laws.
“Any student found to be participating in such gathering/activity or who is arrested by the authorities for doing so may be subjected to disciplinary proceedings,” the statement read.
Polls watchdog Bersih 2.0 is organising a public demonstration in the national capital near Dataran Merdeka, to pressure Putrajaya to carry out electoral reforms before the 14th general elections.
A rival group known as the Red Shirts, led by Sungai Besar Umno division chief Datuk Seri Jamal Yunos, has also declared a counter rally in the city on the same day.
The police have announced both rallies do not have permit to gather, and warned that strict action, including water cannons and tear gas, may be employed against demonstrators.
