'Stern action against civil servants with fake degrees'
KUALA LUMPUR --Chief secretary to the government, Datuk Seri Dr Ali Hamsa warned that stern action would be taken against civil servants found to have bought fake degrees.
"So far there's been no cases of civil servants involved in the fake degree racket. If investigations reveal any such cases, stern action will be taken immediately," he told reporters after his speech to government officers embarking on overseas studies under the transformation programme, here today.
The five-day programme involved 117 civil servants who will be attending several universities abroad to obtain their degrees and masters degrees.
The media had recently reported that the fake degrees were issued by five foreign universities, including three which did not exist.
They were University Of Rockhampton, Harvey International University and Cannington Brook University, all of which were fictitious and Glastonbury University (United Kingdom) and Charles Molnar University (Hungary). - Bernama
