Al-Azhar cracks down scholars forging credentials
[Egypt Independent] Grand Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayyeb said Wednesday that the religious institution is cracking down on teachers guilty of forging Al-Azhar accreditation and contracts.
According to an ongoing investigation, 350 teachers have been found guilty of faking documents to get employment within Al-Azhar or its educational institutes so far.
After questioning, the teachers were referred to Public Prosecution to be charged formally.
Some of the fraudulent contracts were not stamped or signed, while others had provided fake documentation of their past work and accreditation or had dodged military service.
