Forgery must be penalized

WE HAVE spotlighted repeatedly the problem of forged experience certificates submitted to human resources departments, particularly the Ministry of Education. Likewise, other cases related to medical vacancies, have been discovered. We prayed for legal action against such counterfeiters, because they wickedly and purposely aim at getting benefits they do not deserve. They premeditatedly harm the whole community and individuals alike.

The Ministry of Education officials claim no legal powers to judicially hunt counterfeit teachers. Dr Mohammed Al Rokn, a law professor with the UAE University, underlined that Article 217 of the Penal Procedures Code does stipulate a maximum jail term of three years against whosoever presents fake non-official documents issued abroad. Once this is discovered, the clerk in charge must report it to the police.

Otherwise, he would be slapped a fine over charges of colluding with the counterfeiter, noted the ‘Al Khaleej’ daily. Accordingly, such a phenomenon is to be stringently rooted out to ensure public interest, offer equal opportunities, shield the educational process, and produce high standard services.
