SEOUL, July 11 (UPI) — South Korea’s Education Ministry has discovered Korean Air President Cho Won-tae’s transfer to Inha College did not meet credit score requirements and invalidated his undergraduate degree.
A ministry research found out Inha School illicitly authorised Cho’s switch from a -yr school in the U.s.a. in 1998 despite a scarcity of his credit to satisfy requirements.
The investigation used to be a part of a government-extensive probe into misconduct by way of Korean Air’s owner family, sparked through accusations of attack and abuse through the wife and daughters of Chairman Cho Yang-ho.
“Cho did not meet the credit score necessities for the switch in the junior yr, however the faculty allowed it,” said a ministry legit, according to Information 1.
Inha School is run by a basis established by the Cho family’s Hanjin Team.
The ministry also ordered the chairman to step down.
Inha College called the training ministry’s request “unfair” in an announcement Wednesday.
“Such decision can only be made while the chairman causes an important injury to the varsity or made a wrongful intervention at school control,” the college said.
