MP Faisal Al-Shaye has stressed the need for MPs to stop the proliferation of fake academic certificates, warning that the future of the country will be gloomy if the people who hold fake certificates are allowed to assume leadership posts.
Al-Shaye made the statement during the parliamentary session Wednesday. He also disclosed that 5,768 employees obtained bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate certificates without attending classes.
Responding to the lawmaker, State Minister for Cabinet Affairs Sheikh Mohamed Abdallah Al-Sabah affirmed that the government is willing to cooperate with the Parliament in enacting laws which will fortify the educational and career structures in the country.
He added the certificates obtained by employees without getting permission from the employers will not be recognized while disciplinary action will be taken against employees who obtain college degrees without going on official study leave.
