MIA to scrutinize its own institutes
The Ministry of Internal Affairs has created a working group to ensure objective and transparent entrance into the MIAs higher educational institutes
According to the MIA press service, the working group will aim to ensure the openness, transparency and objectiveness of the admission commissions of the institutes, to provide qualified information to prospective students and their parents, a procedure for appealing decisions and the possibility of resolving disputes with the commissions management.
The planned measures are in response to President Yushchenkos call to the MIA and prosecutors office to step up action to combat corruption in higher educational institutes.
The MIA reports that in 2006 the number of cases of bribe-taking in institutes increased in comparison with 2005.
