I have got a kinda complicated issue and here's my inquiry:

I've been in Malaysia since 2013. I've never overstayed before. 

My case is that I got a student visa and I applied from Bali, Indonesia to take a short training course. The college sent me the approval after having been waiting in Bali for about 2 months. I've paid all the visa and studies fees to the college before I started the class. I've got 6 months visa for the training course, and I've come to the college so I submit my passport to the representative person. 

Well, finally I got the visa in September, after a few days of getting the visa, unfortunately, I got to go back to Libya for some reasons. I was stuck in there for about 5 months. I've called the college and said I would come back to Malaysia and settle my case. I stayed in Libya for about 5 months and my payment about RM9K gone for nothing. The college did not cancel the visa and I came back to Malaysia on February through the airport immigration counter and everything was fine.

So because my visa was going to expire on March 2019, I asked the person in charge to give me a release letter so I would be able to get SP by myself at least or they must apply for me to extend my visa but I felt he was wasting my time.. like he didn't want to do it for me. 
I went to the immigration office and also to EMGS, which is near to KLCC. Also to my Embassy and also to my friend in Jalan Duta, all of them said the representative person from the college must come to settle your case. Then I went to that person's office where I've met and given the passport before 5 months he already moved to another place.

Consequently, when it's about to expire, he called me and asked me to pay RM2K to settle my case because they need to pay for clearance penalty. 

Well, I went to his new office and I've paid the staff RM2K by submitting the passport and flight tickets. I have never attended the class as I was in Libya for 5 months and the guy keeps saying it's my fault.

Now, I only want to go back safely with no blacklisting. 

The guy is still holding my passport and gave me a holding letter until the SP is out. Also, my flight tickets are very soon. And last thing, he said the immigration wants to interview me and they want to make it clear but he will do his best to not go for it. 

I see myself I am not wrong and I feel I am being cheated. If I complain by lodging a report at the police station, I might be in trouble but if I keep quiet I will have to pay more. The flight tickets only cost RM4K excluding accommodation. I even don't want to stay here anymore. 

That guy is controlling everything. So, I really need suggestions right now. I have never break the law here and I am getting very worried. 

Hope I can get the answer. Thank you.

You have mentioned that you have never broken any laws here.

Here is a list of Malaysia immigration laws that you have been broken.

1.  You have applied and given a Student Pass which you did not complete the course.

2.  You cannot leave this short stint 6 months course without approval from the college.

3.  You did not cancel this Pass upon expiry date.

4.  You have overstayed since 2013.

5.  The validity period of your passport should have also expired.

Nobody is holding a knife at your neck but you yourself is tightening the noose around your neck.

Only the person who is holding your passport now can make your surrender successful.

While you waiting for your special pass to come out, why dun you help this fellow Libyan ex-student pass holder to exit Malaysia?

By the way.. the letter from the Immigration states that your surrender has been accepted. Congratulations. There should be no further interviews or issues.

@jeff005, thank you so much for your respond.

I want to say regards to your answers:
1. I was forced to go back to Libya after the visa was out only a few days. I asked them for the letter to allow me to leave but they did not give me.

2. They did not cancel the student visa and there's no other choice as I've mentioned above. 

3. I asked them before the visa expired to cancel it but they rejected to give me a holding letter or cancellation.

4. My visa expired since March 2019.

5. No it's not. It's in 2023.

And I have other question as to the last thing they say the passport is in bad condition and I have to change it and take travel document from the embassy to go back to Libya and get a new passport.

The question is will I be blacklisted if I use the letter from the embassy to go back in place of passport?

Either way you will be blacklisted.
A defaced passport can cause you to be heralded to the nearest detention camp and burnt your air ticket.
