So, it is not a British doctorate but Irish. On Irish universities, we could easily check-up with our counterparts abroad. We have an Irish paper from University College of Dublic.
But, a news report in Rocky's blog HERE revealed something that does not bring Emir Mavani out of the wood yet on his alleged fake doctorate. No need to check-up then.
The real story yesterday is Bigdog's revelation HERE.
Minority shares for RM200,000 an acre? Or was it for a hectare?
Dr Chen Man Hin as partner? Non controlling and troubled Board of Directors? High PE acquisition for matured plantation? Lumping RM1.2 billion out of RM4 billion publicly raised?
Wonder, who brought the deal to them?
The news report:
College charges €18,000 fees for 'useless' degreesBack to the issue raised by Bigdog.
Warnborough College in All Hallows, Dublin
SHANE PHELAN AND JOHN WALSHE
15 FEBRUARY 2008
A COLLEGE run by foreign businessmen has been accused of offering effectively "worthless" degrees and doctorates from the grounds of a prestigious third-level institution.
The self-styled Warnborough College is charging up to €18,000 in fees for unrecognised qualifications after renting offices at All Hallows College in Drumcondra, Dublin.
Following inquiries from the Irish Independent, All Hallows confirmed it will not be renewing its rental arrangement with Warnborough.
Using a slick website, Warnborough runs a so-called "distance learning" college where students from all over the world are offered course work over the internet.
Until recently the website included a photograph of All Hallows and made references to graduation ceremonies and seminars that were due to take place there.
However, the Irish Independent has established that the courses offered by Warnborough College are not recognised by the Department of Education.
The courses are also not recognised by the Higher Education and Training Awards Council (HETAC) and the National Qualifications Authority of Ireland (NQAI), which described the qualifications on offer as effectively "worthless".
Neither is Warnborough College, which also has offices in Canterbury in Kent, recognised by the UK Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills as an institution with the power to award its own degrees.
Education chiefs are furious Warnborough College has linked itself to All Hallows, whose degrees are validated by Dublin City University.
All Hallows last night said it was concerned about the presence of Warnborough College on its grounds.
It confirmed it would not be renewing its rental agreement with the college.
Since last July, Warnborough College has rented offices at All Hallows. Prior to that, it had offices above a pub in Bray.
But despite this, the head of Warnborough last night said claims it had tried to link itself to All Hallows were "ludicrous".
Since Emir Mavani is a newbie in the plantation industry, is it the same guy that have been bringing deals to Emir Mavani lately? Who is the guy linked to? Why hard-up to buy this plantation company?
Since Emir Mavani's presence, we've heard of suspicious China deal, grossly overvalued PNG land deal, and now overvalued and non controlling Sabah plantation company.
Is Tan Sri Isa Samad getting sloppy or there is someone else also? His superior is the Prime Minister and it will fall back on him.
Is Dato Najib aware that Felda is his baby and Felda constituencies are vital BN squares on the political board? The general election was just two months away. Are we not learning from the results?
Do not try to please ourselves with the argument that the voters are too hard with their expectation on us. The opposition seemed to get away with their lies and sins. They fact is BN is the Government and a high expectation is good as target to meet.
Voters expectation to be clean and "seen to be clean" is not unrealistic.
