CINS: commission says Finance Minister’s doctorate wasn’t copied Izvor: N1

The dean of the college where Serbian Finance Minister Sinisa Mali got his doctorate called a meeting of senior staff on Tuesday to discuss the findings of an expert commission that examined the disputed doctoral thesis.

Mali’s doctoral thesis from the Belgrade University School of Organizational Sciences (FON) has been disputed amid claims of plagiarism. The failure of the expert commission to rule on the issue has caused protests and a student lockdown in the Belgrade University Rectorate.

Tuesday’s meeting called by FON Dean Milija Suknovic discussed the findings of the expert commission but the dean refused to disclose the findings.

Belgrade University Rector Ivanka Popovic said she expects the FON to find the strength to do the job and take a final decision on Mali’s doctoral thesis by October 26. She told FoNet that she received no official information about the meetings at FON.

 The Serbian Center for Investigative Journalism (CINS) said that it had learned that the commission ruled to confirm and earlier ruling that Mali’s doctoral thesis was not plagiarized. CINS said that the dean did not show FON senior staff the written ruling, informing them of it verbally.

According to University rules, the findings of the expert commission should have gone to the FON teachers’ council for a final decision. A student member of the teachers’ council was not allowed to attend Tuesday’s meeting.
