In the city hall of the Japanese city of Kobe, an official was dismissed because of the availability of higher education. This is written by Asahi Shimbun.

The 48-year-old man has worked for the Bureau of hydraulic engineering since 1996. The reason for the dismissal was that he hid his higher education-the vacancy was intended only for high school graduates. The truth was revealed after the appearance of an anonymous denunciation in March this year.

In his defense, the official said that he did not think that the presence of a diploma could be an obstacle to obtaining a position. In 2006, Kobe was purged of employees for false data in the resume, then the man did not use the right to “legalize” and confirmed that he did not have a higher education.

On may 13, it was reported that the Sevastopol garrison military court sentenced to a fine of 100 thousand rubles a serviceman who cheated the Navy with a fake diploma for a quarter of a century. A Russian sailor from 1994 to 2019 received salary allowances for two regular military ranks and a position.
