Iranian Interior Minister Admits Fake Degree
Iranian Interior Minister Ali Kordan has announced that he is shocked, shocked to learn that his honorary degree from Oxford University is fake. The dodgy circumstances by which he obtained it eight years ago (via "an agency in Tehran for English-language affairs that represents Oxford University") never raised any red flags with him. Nor did any of the spelling and grammatical mistakes in the document (misplaced commas, the word "entitle" is misspelled, etc.)
Kordan is, appropriately, in charge of guarding against fraud and forgery in Iran's upcoming election. Link: LA Times
Coincidentally, the United Arab Emirates announced today
that it will "impose a life ban on the employment of those found to be using fake certificates in order to secure jobs in the country."
