‘I will continue to cheat’ – Student defies minister’s order

KUWAIT CITY, May 14: While activists on the social media, public personalities and Twitter users continued to declare their support for the decision taken by the Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education Dr Hamed Al-Azmi to fight the phenomenon of cheating in exams, a student challenged the decision in a video clip saying: “We shall continue to cheat”, reports Al-Qabas daily.

The student appeared in the video clip with two smart phones next to his text books and confessing he is sending answers to students in the exam room. This is strange behavior at a time when the minister has gained support to fight cheating in exams. The student went to the extent of saying he is sending answers to two students not one. “The minister has taken the decision, but I am sending answers to two students and not one. I am after you until you cancel your decision”, the student said.

The supporters of the decision said it will limit the phenomenon of cheating and protect the educational system, restore the prestige of education and improve the level of Kuwaitis during international assessments. Meanwhile, security authorities have opened an investigation into a video clip posted in the social media by Asian selling clothes, documenting new method of theft, reports Al-Anba daily.

The video clip shows a bearded man entering the shop, stealing clothes, claiming he had purchased the clothes from the shop and demanding refund. The source added, if the clip is true, police will look for the thief.
