GEORGE TOWN: The Iraqi national who was charged in a magistrate’s court for reckless driving last week produced three journals on engineering in English which were published by international bodies.

Vice-chancellor Tan Sri Dzulkifli Razak said Hamood Shehab Hamid, 45, has been doing his doctorate in electronics engineering for the past one-and-a-half years.

“There is no reason for Hamood to say that he did not know English since he wrote the three journals.

“I have no idea why he made such a claim. Anyway it is a court case now, and we will wait for the decision.

“If he is not convicted, we will carry out our own investigations and decide on the action to be taken against him,” he said after opening a workshop at USM here yesterday.

Hamood claimed that he did not know English or Bahasa Malaysia when he was charged in court.

The case has been fixed for mention on March 23.
