education ministry has said it has discovered more than 1,000 fake educational
certificates and is taking stringent measures, including considering
introduction of pre-university qualifications for undergraduate or graduate
studies, to curb this menace, Times of Oman has reported.
As many as 1,224
certificates were found to have been forged, of which 119 were the certificates
for educational qualifications while 1,177 cases involved stamps and ratification
documents issued by the foreign affairs ministry. The majority of the fake
certificates were those ostensibly issued by institutions in Jordan, Egypt,
Iraq, Yemen, Tanzania, India, Pakistan, the UK, and the USA, the ministry said.
