IF it is determined that there is any irregularity in the work of the Faculty of Management (FAM) in Sremski Karlovci, we will exclude the faculty from the University. Also, if it is determined that those who have a diploma have not fulfilled all examination obligations in the manner and according to the procedure determined by law and the study program, the higher education institution will declare the diploma null and void.
This was told to “Novosti” at the private University “Union Nikola Tesla”, under whose auspices the Faculty of Management works, which is suspected of its employees issuing fake diplomas, for which 17 suspects were arrested.
At the University, they point out that the mentioned faculty performs its activity as a separate legal entity with its founder against whom, as they assume, proceedings are being conducted and who as such have no direct connections with the responsible person or employees of Union Nikola Tesla University.
By the way, among the 17 arrested in connection with the machinations with university degrees, there is also GK, the dean of the Faculty of Management in Sremski Karlovci. After the hearing in the Novi Sad Higher Public Prosecutor’s Office of the Special Department for the Fight against Corruption, he was detained for up to 30 days in order not to influence witnesses. The news about him, and the arrest of AK and MA, also employees at this faculty, upset the students, who, as we find out, called FAM on Monday, and asked if this higher education institution works. As we were told in the Student Service, the lectures are held without any problems and the work of the faculty continues.
Also, the High Court in Novi Sad ordered the detention for up to 30 days of TI (72), a former warden of the Sremska Mitrovica Penitentiary, who is suspected of trading in influence, in connection with the purchase of diplomas. Custody was ordered for three more suspects from this university, while for one suspect, for whom custody was proposed by the prosecution, the court refused. The other suspects in this case will defend themselves from freedom.
Court spokeswoman Jelena Ostojin told Tanjug that the pre-trial judge of the Special Department for the Suppression of Corruption of the High Court in Novi Sad had ordered custody for T. I, G. K, as well as AL and NS due to the danger of influencing witnesses. They are suspected of having committed the crime of trading in influence.
SIGNATURE OF THE RECTOR, STAMP OF THE UNIVERSITY
When asked whether the University, however, has a responsibility, because the diplomas bear the seal of the university and the signature of the rector, and whether they will bear any sanctions because of everything, the “Nikola Tesla Union” says:
– It is indisputable that diplomas and diploma supplements at the University are signed by the rector and the dean of the Faculty. As the responsible person of the Faculty, the Dean checks the accuracy of public documents, whether all examination applications and other supporting documentation kept by the Faculty service are in accordance with the regulations and submits the signed document to the University Rector for signature.
