MONDAY, 30 DECEMBER – Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS), Prof. Datuk Dr. Mohd. Harun Abdullah advised students to thoroughly scrutinise any news obtained through social media so as not to cause any confusion.
He said this when asked to comment on rumours about the issue on cleanliness at UMS Labuan International Campus (UMSKAL) which was reported to be unclean and had caused food poisoning among its students.
He said the university will not hesitate to take action against operators that do not take care of the cleanliness of its premises as well as on food preparation.
“So far I have not received any complaints from the students about the cleanliness issue of the campus. If there are any complaints, UMSKAL Director would surely have kept me informed,” he said.
He added that the university will take stern action against canteen operators that do not ensure the cleanliness of its premises as it could threaten the health and safety of students.
“If there are complaints, we will not compromise. UMS always take its students’ safety seriously,” he insisted. – ZMD
