UIAM Rector Prof Datuk Dr Zaleha Kamaruddin told reporters yesterday the week-long suspension was to enable a detailed investigation to be carried out over allegations that the law professor criticised the Selangor Sultan.
“The university will pay his salary as usual and he is free to enter the university and associate with the faculty,” she said.
“Kindly take note that pending the completion of the University’s investigation into the above allegation and the outcome of any inquiry which the University may wish to conduct, you shall be suspended from service on full pay with immediate effect, until further notice,” the letter read.
“Please be reminded that during the period of your suspension, you are not authorised to enter the premises of the University without the express written permission of the Dean, Ahmad Ibrahim Kulliyah of Laws.
“You are further neither authorised to conduct any transactions on behalf of the University nor contact staff of the University or business associates of the University without the express written permission of the Dean, Ahmad Ibrahim Kulliyah of Laws.”
