Australia's Westpac Bank Mistakenly Allowed Malaysian Student to Spend A$4.6mil (RM13.8mil)

The Star Online: A Malaysian student in Australia charged with allegedly spending A$4.6mil (RM13.8mil) mistakenly given to her by a bank may have moved A$5,000 (RM15,000) a day to secret bank accounts around the country. The Daily Telegraph reported that Christine Jiaxin Lee apparently siphoned off A$33,000 (RM99,000) a week to private accounts at banks not affiliated with Westpac, the bank which had mistakenly allowed her to spend A$4.6mil (RM13.8mil). Christine Lee Jiaxin was arrested while trying to fly to Malaysia on an emergency passport. These hidden stashes are thought to total A$1.3mil (RM3.9mil) but the transfers were small enough not to raise red flags for the bank. It was also reported that a significant portion of the remaining missing A$3.3mil (RM9.9mil) may have been moved overseas or already spent. The 21-year-old chemical engineering student had been given an unlimited overdraft when she opened a bank account with Westpac Bank in August 2012. She then s

Universiti Majlis Amanah Rakyat (UniMara) Putrajaya Campus to Open in September with 800 Students Intake

Free Malaysia Today: Universiti Majlis Amanah Rakyat (UniMara) akan mula dibuka di Kampus Putrajaya dengan pengambilan pertama seramai 800 pelajar, September ini. Pengerusi Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara), Tan Sri Annuar Musa berkata buat permulaan, kumpulan pelajar berkenaan akan mengikuti pengajian peringkat diploma dan ijazah pertama melibatkan kursus kemahiran dan vokasional. “UniMara merupakan institusi pengajian tinggi swasta (IPTS) yang diwujudkan menerusi perancangan teliti Mara dalam membantu kaum Bumiputera di luar bandar mempertingkatkan taraf pendidikan mereka,” katanya. Why make it a private university when it is fully funded by the government? Why is there a need for UniMara when there are already so many campuses of UiTM nationwide? If UniMara is for skill-based and vocational courses, will the university goals and courses offered overlap with numerous existing polytechnics in the countries?
