Iran: Minister admits to fake Oxford


Tehran, 30 Sept. (AKI) – Iran’s Minister of the Interior, Ali Kordan,
may not be as qualified as he originally claimed to be after he admitted
he lied about a fake university degree.

Ali Kordan admitted to holding a fake honorary law degree from Britain’s
eminent Oxford University, but he blamed an unnamed university official
for conferring the degree, according to the semi-official Iranian news
Fars on Tuesday.

“Over the past eight years, I never doubted the validity of the degree
and that’s why I presented it in the course of the confidence vote,”
wrote Kordan in a letter to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Kordan also said he pressed charges against the unnamed person who
claimed to represent Oxford University in Tehran as soon as he realised
his degree was fake, said Iranian media.

The degree had been issued for his “managerial and executive experience”
and for allegedly submitting a thesis to the university via a person who
had opened an office in Tehran, said Kordan.
