The Education Ministry said that it would take action in collaboration with the CID against  parents or guardians who had submitted bogus documents with the aim of admitting their children to school.

“Countless incidents where bogus documents have been submitted to admit children to schools are being reported daily. Therefore, as a measure of curbing such rackets Minister Bandula Gunawardena has decided to investigate such illegal activities and punish those found guilty,” Ministry Secretary Sunil S. Sirisena.

Meanwhile, interviews for next year’s Grade I admissions have begun and will continue till September 15.

The interviews are being conducted by a special board headed by the school principal and include the deputy principal, primary sectional head, a representative each from the School Development Society and the Past Pupils’ Association.

    When is the government going to act against all those, including MPs, who transfer vehicles brought in duty free, on bogus papers?

    All those parents should be tied to trees near the respective schools and then get an affidavit from each one confirming that they themselves tied to the trees to atone for their sins.

    Come on, this is country which thrives on bogus documents, commissions, reports etc. Any thing true is branded unpatriotic.

    yes. a very good initiative. those who are preparing fake documents should be severly funished. dangerous thing is that they ask their children to tell lies.
