Fake school teacher arrested

2013 Dec 19

A teacher from a leading school in Nugegoda has been arrested after it was revealed that he had produced fake certificates to be recruited in 2008.

The police media unit said that the teacher had appeared for the interview to be recruited as a teacher to St. Joseph’s College in Nugegoda.

Investigations had revealed that the man had produced a fake certificate claiming it was from the Kelaniya University.

While he had continued to teach at the school for nearly six years a complaint was later made to the Colombo fraud bureau.

Following the complaint an investigation was launched and it was found that he had been recruited to the school in 2008 based on the fake documents he produced.

As a result he has now been arrested, the police media unit said. (Colombo Gazette)
