Category: Crime News

A Bahraini media report said an expat teacher of Arab nationality was sentenced to one year in prison and deportation after forging attendance records.

In 2018, the teacher falsified attendance and evaluation reports of students at the school, according to court documents.

It all began when the school had suspicious about a signature on one of the reports filed by the teacher. The report, school administration found, had two signatures - one belonged to the teacher, and the other was of his department head.

Upon investigation, the school found that the department head hadn't actually signed the report. "I asked him to make some adjustments when he brought me these reports. However, he submitted them to the school administration using a faked version of my signature," according to the department head.

The Ministry of Education set up a committee to investigate the incident, which proved the teacher's crime, and the school filed a police report.

The police investigation also uncovered discrepancies in student evaluation records filed by the teacher. The report said the evaluation of the students on papers is different from that of online.

The teacher was also found guilty of manipulating the attendance reports of his students. Investigation proved that he had marked present even for students who were absent. A public prosecutor charged him with forgery and misconduct and sentenced him to one year in jail and deportation.
