Police Raid Zagreb University Amid “Exam Selling” Scandal


Police have raided the Faculty of Medicine in Zagreb. According to reports in daily newspaper Jutarnji list, police raided the university this morning and detained 12 staff and students for questioning on suspicion of buying and selling exams.

The University School of Medicine confirmed this afternoon that they had suspended one professor, an administrator, a student assistant and two students, after they were informed of the corruption allegations by police.

This is not the first time that the police have raided a Zagreb University. In 2008 several professors and students were arrested for similar offences from the Faculty of Economics and Transport.
