Universities cancel admission of ex-minister’s daughter

South Korea’s Pusan National University on Tuesday 5 April made a final decision to revoke the 2015 admission of former justice minister Cho Kuk’s daughter Cho Min to its medical school because her parents doctored her credentials, reports The Chosunilbo.

The university already announced the preliminary decision last August. On Tuesday it pointed out that its admission regulations stipulate that applicants cannot be admitted if their documentation is false, and admission can be cancelled even decades after graduation if fraud is discovered.

Cho Min has already graduated and gained her medical licence, serving her internship in a public hospital, so it is now up to the Ministry of Health and Welfare whether to annul it. Medical licences can be annulled if holders have either failed to get a medical degree or have it revoked, whichever technicality applies in this case.

Korea University has also revoked the admission of Cho Kuk’s daughter on the grounds that her 2010 application contained false information, it was confirmed on Thursday, reports The Chosunilbo.
