PUTRAJAYA, Feb 11 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak today shrugged off doubts about his academic qualifications from UK’s University of Nottingham.

When asked to clarify regarding his degree from the University of Nottingham, the former prime minister said: “No problem.”

“Of course, my degree is legitimate,” he said while leaving the Court of Appeal here.

Najib was in court for the hearing of his application to stay his first-ever trial in relation to the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal.

Earlier today, Ayer Hitam MP Chong Zhemin said MCA president Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong should question Najib about the latter’s degree as part of his checks on Pakatan Harapan (PH) leaders’ qualifications.

The DAP MP had highlighted a video circulating online alleging that Najib never completed his studies at the University of Nottingham in the 70s.

Chong had also told Najib to disprove the allegation by publishing the transcripts of his examinations as well as a copy of his degree.
