UMK denies plagiarism among academicians
KOTA BAHARU: Universiti Malaysia Kelantan (UMK) has denied allegations of plagiarism involving some of its academicians as claimed in a posting on social website Facebook, several days ago.
Vice-Chancellor Datuk Dr Raduan Che Rose said the UMK authorities were taking a serious view of the issue and begun investigations into the matter.
“This is a serious matter and I’ve called on the parties involved to resolve the matter … I think this is merely a misunderstanding,” he told reporters after the UMK Citra Award 2014 Ceremony at the Pengkalan Chepa Campus here.
