The Head of Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission (CSC), Ahmad Al Jassar announced on Sunday that the Commission has taken several measures against suspects forging educational certificates and diplomas.

The action was taken after the CSC received a document from the Ministry of Higher Education containing the names of several suspects.

Al Jassar told Kuna these measures included withdrawing administrative decisions issued based on the forged documents.

He also pointed out that some of the procedures also insisted on "the recovery of all the finances that were spent unjustly on the suspects."

Al Jassar affirmed that CSC operated according to the law and will not tolerate or hide those named in the list by the Ministry of Higher Education.

According tweets by Kuna, suspects would be banned from working in the country.

The decisions taken by Civil Service Commission came within the framework of the fight against corruption and applying the law on everyone equally, Al Jassar added.

CSC, under the supervision of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs Anas Al Saleh and the Leaders of CSC, promptly conducted the necessary research to cooperate with the Ministry of Higher Education on this matter of grave importance, he stated.
