University Suspends Professor Aziz Bari

There are probably less than 5 decent law lecturers in this god-forsaken country.

I know two of them -- Aziz Bari of International Islamic University and Azmi Sharom of University Malaya.

As of a few hours ago, I apparently only know one, because Aziz Bari has been suspended indefinitely.

He is one of the few gentlemen and civil servants that have the gumption to speak up against blatant government practices and injustices.

According to a source, Aziz is accused of "making statements that run contrary to the interest of the university" as stated in the show-cause letter issued to him.

The issue is pure and simple -- he has given support to the BERSIH 2.0 movement.

So the UMNO government is unhappy, and possibly enraged about that and wants his head on a platter.

But they are picking a fight, not with one man, but a host of angry students that he has worked with.
