Islamabad: Lawmaker caught holding 2 fake degrees
ISLAMABAD: Another lawmaker has been found to be holding two fake graduation degrees, taking the number of such cases to three.
Fresh addition in the list is Sardar Ali, an independent member of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly. Mr Ali was one of the ten legislators who disowned their academic degrees available with the Election Commission (EC).
A committee verifying degrees of lawmakers told Inamullah, a representative of the MPA, that the second degree presented by the provincial legislator had also been declared fake by the University of Peshawar.
Ali Madad Jaddak, a PPP member of Balochistan Assembly, was the first lawmaker whose two degrees turned out fake.
When he presented his second degree while disowning the first one, he also produced a verification certificate of Shah Abdul Latif University. Like the degree, the certificate was also found fake.
The second case was that of Seemal Kamran, a PML-Q member of the Punjab Assembly, who disowned the graduation degree issued to her by the Punjab University in 1991.
After the degree was declared fake, she presented another one, showing that she had graduated from Shah Abdul Latif University. It was also declared fake by the university. The next hearing into the case of the MPA will be held on December 28.
