Expatriates employed hold unauthenticated credentials

July 23, 20180

MP Safaa Al-Hashem revealed that the parliamentary Replacement and Job Crisis Committee will meet next week with the concerned governmental bodies to discuss the termination of all expatriates working in the public sector.

She claimed most expatriates employed in the public sector hold unauthenticated credentials. She pointed out the incompetent individuals, who got higher positions by presenting fake credentials, are hiring employees similar to them; hence, the deteriorating situation in many governmental bodies or departments. “What if some of these individuals are engineers or doctors?”

she wondered; pointing out this will negatively affect lives and infrastructure. Meanwhile, the fraudulent credentials issue gains momentum as days go by, with parliamentarians submitting draft legislation and proposals in this regard while governmental authorities are keen on addressing the issue.

More and more MPs are adding their voices to the cause; as the majority, including Parliament Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim, calls for disclosure of the names of those proven guilty. Al-Ghanim stressed, “This is a dangerous case and we should not bow to pressure.” Al-Ghanim said that he stands by Education Minister Dr Hamid Al-Azmi in the wake of the academic fraud case in which a number of forged college degrees has been uncovered. “I would like to thank Dr Al-Azmi and the entire staff of the education ministry for their efforts to get to the bottom of this issue,” Al-Ghanim said in a statement.
