Let PTPTN Defaulters travel abroad

Several MPs want a section of the National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) Bill that stopped loan defaulters from going overseas be revoked. The section called on the police or the Immigration Department to prevent loan defaulters from leaving the country until they have settled their loans.

# 01 : MP Datuk Badruddin Amiruldin (BN – Jerai) questioned :-
"Why the PTPTN did not improve efforts to recover the loans using the students’ records. The corporation should form a special recovery division, just like the financial institutions,” he said in debating the Bill".

# 02 : MP Datuk Abdul Ghapur Salleh (BN – Kalabakan) said :-
" The borrowers might not vote for Barisan Nasional if the section was enforced"

# 03 : MP Datuk Mohd Zaid Ibrahim (BN – Kota Baru) said :-
" Other approaches should be made to recover the loans. The corporation should have a full database of the defaulters and they should work from there to get back the loans,” he added.

# 04 : MP : Datuk Mahadzir Mohd Khir (BN – Sungai Petani) called for :-
" A restructuring of the management of PTPTN. We do not have to use such harsh enforcement on loan defaulters. It will be easy if you really want to trace them; just use MyKad,” he said.

# 05 : MP Dr Wee Ka Siong (BN – Ayer Hitam) said :-
" The high number of loan defaulters showed that there were many problems in the corporation, especially in managing its finances. It was reported that the PTPTN was trying to recover loans of about RM600mil from the borrowers".

Suggestion # 02 by MP Datuk Abdul Ghapur Salleh (BN – Kalabakan) is unaccepted & unbecoming of a Wakil Rakyat. Is this how he expect BN Govt to manage Tax-payers money? With this type of attitude & mentality, no wonder the borrowers are relaxing & escape paying their dues amounting to RM600 million !!!

Clearly, the MPs who opposed that particular section are afraid of losing votes in the GE.

Actually, when I first saw the title of this thread. I was thinking - ok, we let the defaulters oversea & don't let them in when they come back. (Until they pay up on-the -spot)

Good idea or not? Unless they have PR at other countries, where else can they go? With most of their assets still on M'sian soil.
