Ministry examines bribery allegations

THE Ministry of Education is investigating teachers and officials accused of accepting bribes from students in exchange for allowing them to cheat during nationwide high school exams last month, officials said yesterday. Ou Eng, director general of the general department of education at the Ministry, said that a ministry committee was investigating reported irregularities at exam centres. “We have a report [about the irregularities], we must take action,” Ou Eng said. He added that the Ministry may ban offending teachers and officials from supervising the exams for a period of one to three years, and that some could be removed from their positions.
