...I sure hope this place doesn't train medical lab technicians...

The owner of a local private college is facing bribery charges for allegedly attempting to pay off a public official after the college was accused of granting fraudulent diplomas.

The Ministry alleges that money was offered to an official in exchange for a report that would have stated the college was in compliance with provincial standards.

Zhenxiang "Gordon" Yi, 45, was taken into custody on Friday, and has been charged with two counts of bribery. He is scheduled to appear in court on July 4.

A student visa 'business' decided to branch out into fake diplomas. That's their big mistake - you're allowed to lie, cheat and steal when it comes to immigration, but the powerful 'education system' has a monopoly on handing out diplomas of dubious quality.

I'm just surprised to hear that the bribe wasn't accepted!
