Fake colleges let Pakistani suspects into Britain: report
London, May 22: Pakistani fraudsters set up a network of fake colleges which helped thousands of Pakistani nationals enter Britain on student visas, The Times reported on Thursday. The students at 11 bogus colleges included eight of the 10 suspects arrested last month in a terror probe in northwest England, the newspaper said.

It reported that one college sold hundreds of places to men from the NWFP. The three Pakistani businessmen operating the scam charged at least 1,000 for admission places after creating a fictional university to issue degrees, The Times said. One of the businessmen has been linked to two murders in Pakistan, it said, adding that the man was arrested on Wednesday, after The Times gave the Home Office a dossier implicating two of the colleges.

The Times said the scam exploited lax controls on student visas in Britain which are being tightened in the wake of the Pakistanis' terror probe arrests last month. The newspaper said eight of the suspects enrolled for 11 months at the Manchester College of Professional Studies, which issued hundreds of diplomas and degrees and stated that students had impeccable attendance records.

In reality, the college, set up in 2006, was a "front that provided cover for students to do whatever they wanted in Britain", The Times said. Its founders claimed it was linked to "Greenford University" and "Blackpool University" in Dublin. Neither university exists. Nevertheless the 'universities' accredited the Manchester college with an array of undergraduate and postgraduate honours courses which the small three-classroom college was incapable of teaching, The Times said. At one point, the Manchester college had 1,797 students on its books. afp

Adult education project a failure, admits Mazhar
Larkana: Sindh Education Minister Pir Mazharul Haq admitted on Thursday that project for adult education was a failure despite spending Rs550 million over the past six years.

Addressing a seminar on "non-formal education", the minister said that the huge amount of public money had gone down the drain.

He said that the World Bank had given a go-ahead to Sindh government to establish 1,000 schools in 10 districts of the province where 72 per cent population was illiterate.

Each girl and boy would receive a remuneration of Rs450 and Rs350 per month, respectively, and 4,000 new teachers would be recruited under the plan, he said.

He stressed the need for holding seminars on a regular basis in remote areas of the province to create awareness, which was a vital tool to compete in the world.

The minister said that possession of 33 schools established in remote areas by Z.A. Bhutto government with the US assistance had been handed over to the Sindh Education Foundation and said that 13,000 teachers would soon be recruited.

He criticised the previous government for declaring successful the candidates who had got only 40 per cent marks in the examination and said that 1,400 closed schools would be reopened soon.

Director of literacy Abdul Wahab Abbasi and a number of other educationists also addressed the seminar, which was attended by district coordination officers of Larkana, Qambar-Shahdadkot, Shikarpur and officials of the education department.
