Back in 2019, a Universiti Malaya (UM) graduate, who was also the leader of a youth party on campus, made headlines for conducting a solo protest on stage during his convocation, where he called for the now-former Vice-Chancellor (VC) to step down from his position due to various reasons.

Here’s a throwback:

Well, following the incident, the now 27-year-old Wong Yan Ke faced backlash from the general public, who called for his Degree to be retracted. He was also facing charges in court, which has finally come to a conclusion.

Taking to their TikTok page, Bernama TV shared that Wong was found guilty of provocation and was given a fine of RM5,000.

Graduate 2

They wrote, “Universiti Malaya (UM) graduate Wong Yan Ke was fined RM5,000 by the KL Magistrate’s Court after being found guilty of provoking the anger of former UM Vice-Chancellor, Prof Datuk Dr Abdul Rahim Hashim, and guests during the 59th UM Convocation Ceremony, 4 years ago.”

According to a report by Harian Metro, Wong can be imprisoned for 3 months on top of the fine, should he fail to pay.
