Allegations Of Sex For Exam Passes At Medical University


More details have emerged in the Croatian media in the aftermath of last week’s scandal in the Croatian education system when police raided the Zagreb Medical University and arrested 12 people on suspicion of bribery.

Professors, students, assistants and administration staff were among those to be remanded in custody for 30 days following investigations into exam passes being sold for cash. Croatian daily newspaper Novi list now reports that some professors even asked for sexual favours in return for pass marks. A student, who wished to remain anonymous, provided the newspaper with the information that they say is a well-known occurrence at Croatian universities.

“I don’t know why any student has not decided to report a professor who is asking for sex in return for pass marks. Probably shame is the reason, said the paper’s source.

“To make a formal report about receiving or offering bribes, something of monetary value must be in question, which intimate relations is not. However, the professor could certainly be reported for abuse of his position and authority, explained lawyer Veljko Miljevic.
