Earlier this year, it was reported that former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had been keeping himself busy by pursuing a Master’s degree from UKM.
Now, it has been revealed by his lawyer, Tan Sri Shafee Abdullah that Najib is applying to pursue postgraduate studies while serving his sentence. Shafee said that Najib has already written some research for his postgraduate studies based on several pieces of advice given.
“His assistant will also bring him reading materials to read during visits, however, the materials will be filtered as not any materials can be brought in.”
“This makes me happy that at least he is doing something and the mind is not idle,” he said during the Keluar Sekejap podcast hosted by former Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin and Shahril Hamdan.
When asked whether he often visits Najib, Shafee said he attempts to see the former Pekan MP at least once a week.
Meanwhile, Shafee denied claims that Najib was not serving his sentence due to the fact that a few several social media posts under his account were made despite him being in prison.
“I visit him every week, sometimes every two weeks and every time in court (during trial), I try to sit down and have lunch with him, just to have conversations,” he shared.
“He (Najib) is also serving his sentence in prison. However, he is isolated from everyone else due to security aspects. This is because anything can happen if he is placed with others.”
