Minister of Education: We will not accept compromising the reputation of our universities

Minister of Education and Higher Education Abbas al-Halabi declared, “If we discover collusion through the sale of university degrees from universities in Lebanon, we will pursue the student, the university, and the mediator or broker, because we do not accept compromising the reputation and certificate of our universities.”

Al-Halabi promised that those involved would be prosecuted legally if the forgery of diplomas was proven, which could lead to the closure of the universities involved, according to the Iraqi News Agency.
