12 arrested over exam forgery ring

HANOI: Police said yesterday they had arrested 12 people in Hanoi for their role in a network that allegedly recruited high-flying students to sit exams for prospective university graduates. 

Three people who worked for a private real estate company were arrested this week on forgery charges, police said. 

Last Thursday, ringleader Pham Co Phu, a 34-year-old medical doctor in Hanoi, was held as part of the nationwide police campaign to eliminate cheating during the annual university entrance exams. 

Among the others detained as part of the crackdown were two former Hanoi University graduates who were detained on July 8 for the exam scam. 

Candidates paid between US$2,000 (RM7,600) and US$3,500 (RM13,300) to have someone else take the exams.  

The network exchanged the candidates by doctoring their identification cards and university applications files. – AFP
