Since it was revealed a British paedophile sexually abused over 20 kids while he was in Malaysia over the period of 8 years, Malaysians also started talking about Nur Fitri Azmeer Nordin, a MARA scholar

He was convicted of paedophilia in the UK and sentenced to 5 years in jail but was secretly brought back to Malaysia in 2015.

But Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA) Chairman Annuar Musa is not happy about it.

The MARA Chairman is reportedly miffed about people trying to link both the cases, The Malay Mail Online has revealed.

When asked if MARA would stand by its decision to give Nur Fitri a second chance after Richard Huckle's case, Annuar Musa said that both the case should not be linked in any way, The MMO reported

"No need to link Nur Fitri to this case," the Ketereh MP told Malay Mail Online.

When asked his reasons for saying so when both youths were found in possession of indecent images of children, Annuar did not elaborate, merely replying, “No”.

After Nur Fitri was sentenced in the UK, MARA, after initially cancelling his scholarship, had come out in support of him in favour of giving the pedo a second chance, prompting public outcry

Meanwhile, Richard was sentenced to life in prison. Awarded 22 life sentences, he would serve at least 23 years behind bars.
