Greek cleaning lady jailed for 10 years for faking elementary school diploma

A Greek cleaning lady has been sentenced to 10 years in jail for fibbing about
her elementary school record in a court ruling which has provoked uproar in the
country.

The 53-year-old woman had worked at a publicly-funded nursery for 15 years
until a review in 2014 revealed she had doctored a certificate documenting her
primary education.

Itís been (for obvious reasons) widely reported. All using the same or similar words. Clearly the ruling given, for the reasons stated, is absurd and I suspect wonít stand for long. Some beak(s) will likely end up with very sore knuckles, if not an unexpected retirement party.

Unfortunately, by the letter of the law she has been receiving money fraudulently for 15 years.

That this has even reached the courts is a travesty, her sacking would have been a more sensible outcome.

My apologies. When you said both that you found it difficult to believe and "Oh yes , it's in the paper , must be true lol" I thought you might be regarding it as some sort of fabrication.

You should calm down Scottie, or you will burst something. Wink Very Happy

Ahh, my apologies again. When you capitalise in posts it's usually interpreted as shouting. Not the stuff of calmness. Wink

I'm surprised at your humour comment. Some people on the forum seem to regard most of what I post as being humorous. Laughing Sad

Anyway, to get back to............. I sincerely hope the lady in question gets to do her Christmas shopping. If, as the report suggests, she's worked as a cleaner at the nursery for 15 years it's difficult to translate that into "defrauding the public", even if her CV said she had a PhD in quantum physics. Who really cares?

I'm sure most of us could produce a long list of pretty despicable criminal cases where the perpetrators didn't end up doing a decade of porridge.

Hopefully it's a short term "watch this space" thing.

Crikey, if 10 years is a just sentence for that little lie, reckon they should bring back hanging for the many whoppers told by Messrs Farage, Johnson, Gove et al! Cool

I hope so too . It's an absolute nonsense . Wonder what the verdict will be on the psychiatrist who has recently been discovered in the UK after 35 years, life imprisonment perhaps Laughing
I capitalised ( is that a word in this context ? ) Anyway I did that just in case you were not familiar with the old facebook joke . I was not at all angry .
By the way , I am still sceptical Wink

15 years - then reduced to 10. What are we complaining about?

Unbelievable. Sad

Indeed.

I appreciate your posts and agree wholeheartedly.

My past experience - journalism, nursing, counselling and legal advice (free) can expose one to horrors which develop in us a certain humour.

Others may in their earnestness not appreciate this.

Correct me if you think I'm wrong. Actually that last sentence is self-evident. Of course this forum is where I come to be told what I should think lol. (For those whose seriousness precludes laughter, please note this is a joke) no emojis ta.
