Faryab education director having fake degree arrested
MAIMANA (Pajhwok): The education director of northwestern Faryab province has been arrested for allegedly having a fake degree and other documents, an official said on Tuesday.
Chief Prosecutor Habibullah Alam told Pajhwok Afghan News Director Ghulam Sakhi Bayan was arrested late on Monday based on reports that his degree and documents were bogus.
“An assessment has been launched to ascertain whether his documents are genuine or not,” he said, without explaining where Bayan was arrested and who complained against him.
But the director alleged he had been detained due to personal differences and there was no problem with his documents. His arrest was politically motivated and someone wanted to remove him from the post, the official insisted.
“The ministry should have checked his documents at the time he was appointed to the post. Now one can ask the ministry why someone with a fake degree was appointed as education director,” he argued.
Bayan demanded his immediate release and damages for harm to his reputation and personality, because he had been jailed without any court order or due legal process.
