Police report for Degree certification lost.

Tell me, this is super RIDICULOUS people!

I lost my Degree certification somewhere in my old house around Dec 2009, and I only realized it 2 months later when i needed the cert for some of my applications. It's gone missing even though i still remember exactly where did I place it. Anyway, it was really my bad luck and my fault too for not being so careful on this.

I emailed to my instructor in the university at first for help. He then passed me to one of the ladies whom he thought she might be in charge of those matters.

I mailed her:

She then replied me a day or 2 days after, it was 8th March.

Such a nice and helpful lady but I DID NOT receive any email/ reply from her colleague at all until today which is 29th March, so means I have been waiting for 21 days for a reply. Good God!

And it's not she replied to me, I made a phone call to her office and thank God she was in.

Me: Hi, can I speak to Pn. R.n

RN: Yes, i'm speaking.

Me: Hi, I'm Crystal, referred by Ms. Zaleha to contact u for the degree cert reissue matter. I have mailed to Ms. Zaleha and she told me you are the right person for me to talk to. My name student ID is:.....

RN: Oh, i remember. But I have replied to you regarding this matter. (*thanks God she still remembers)

Me: What? Sorry, I didn't receive any email from you so far. So may I know what is your advice about this matter and how could I get another copy of my cert.

RN: Oh, you have to go to police station and make a police report.

Me (with both eyes open super widely on the other line) Huh???? Police report? Why I have to do a police report about the Degree certification that i accidentally lost. I thought I could just make a request from the university itself

RN: No, you have to go to log a police report first. You bring the police report to us, we will issue to you a LETTER OF CONFIRMATION that you have studied in university.

Me: So it means, without a police report, University wont be able to re-issue any certification for any special case?

RN: Yes. We need a police report.

Me: But I'm in Singapore now, how could I make a police report in Malaysia
RN: That's why! (*what did she mean?????) Do you have any friend here? Maybe you can ask friend for help.

I didn't want to write up til the end because until this part, I was so pissed til I couldn't want to continue the conversation, I said "I will try" and bye her off.

Can anybody tell me: What does police gotta do with a Degree certification lost???? This is the very first time in my life i heard this. I can't understand and I can't tolerate it.

I put myself into their shoes and elaborate all these rules: Maybe they are afraid of i'm lying to them to get a copy of the certification? Maybe they are freaking of their copyright cert design will be stolen? Or what?
Even though if I have so much free time to create all these stupid shits, logging a report to cheat the university,  what police can do to investigate that i'm telling a lie or a truth? It's basically NOTHING.

Can't it be so simple as such: A person makes a request to the university for degree cert copy, pays some amount for penalty and wait to collect the cert within period of time????


And yet they dont even give another copy of original cert, just a piece Letter of confirmation saying that i've studied here, when to when, what course, etc....For God's sake man, If somebody was in same situation like me and they are living in US or Europe, how the hell they could make a police report in Malaysia? Probably, getting a new Degree cert is just a dream then.

I couldn't take it when it comes to all administrative procedures in most of SEA countries. So mad annoying, redundant and complicated! Why could they just make people's life difficult for a small matter? Not just yet, they even think they have the right to suffer people by all ways, bla bla bla...

Hate to the max...@#@#$%$%^$%#

P/s: This is the second time in a month, I go to police station for different situations. Wtf!
