Governmental Cooperation centre has called on public offices to interact with social media claims of employees having fake academic certificates.
The Governmental Cooperation centre is part of the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers.
An official from Qualification Equivalency and Recognition Department said that there will be no mercy shown when it comes to fake certificates.
“They [the accused] will be sent directly to the Public Prosecution. Fake certificates are not new. We have had 1,250 cases from 1975, 117 of which involved fake seals, 108 for fraudulent qualifications, and 25 of which were certificates from entirely fictitious institutions." - Al Nasr Al Ruqaishi, Qualification Equivalency and Recognition Department.
