67 Pakistani politicians hold fake degrees: Report

The Higher Education Commission (HEC) is yet to receive the matriculate and intermediate certificates from 428 members of parliament and assemblies to enable it verify their degrees.

It has now asked the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to obtain the certificates so it can verify them, the News International reported.

In a letter to ECP, the HEC said it will examine the degrees. The letter was delivered to ECP a day before the departure of HEC chairman Farooq Leghari to London on Thursday.

Sources said 13 members have already been de-seated on account of their fake educational degrees and by-elections have been held in the constituencies. They are among the 67 members who hold fake degrees.
