Three Lebanese universities: Modern University of Business and Science, the Islamic University of #Lebanon, and Jinan University, are being accused of issuing fake diplomas to Iraqi students, after the Iraqi Education Ministry noted “the influx of approximately 27,000 thousand forged certificates obtained by Iraqis from Lebanon”. According to Kuwait newspaper “Al-Anbaa”, a master’s degree was being sold for $5,000 while the cost of a doctorate was $10,000.

Lebanon’s Education Minister has promised to investigate the matter and prosecute all those implicated. This is not the first case of forged certificates in Lebanon and definitely won’t be the last, especially when you have a ministry as corrupt (historically) as the Education one.
