噓をばらまくことに人生を捧げた人々

"日慰安婦蛮行知らせることが東海・独島(ドクト)解決法"

ニューヨークのホロコーストリソースセンターでは去る11日日帝治下で日本軍人らの性的奴隷に引きずられて行った慰安婦が体験した惨状を告発する展示会が開幕した。 来月18日まで続くこの追慕展示会は米主流社会に強大な影響力を持ったユダヤ人コミュニティがナチの ホロコースト(ユダヤ人大量虐殺)を告発するためにセウン記念館を場所に選択したという点で格別の 意味を持つことと評価される。

この展示会を企画したニューヨーク韓国人有権者センターキム・ドンソク常任理事は何と3年にかけてセンター関係者たちを説得して展示許可を受け取ったという。学術行事出席のために最近訪韓したキム理事は18日行ったインタビューで「2007年7月30日米下院を通過した"日本軍慰安婦決議案"が単なる紙切れにならないように持続的に日本の蛮行を告発して、後世に人権教育をするためのもの」と今回の展示会の趣旨を説明した。

キム理事は「慰安婦決議案が採択されて4年が過ぎたが日本は戦争犯罪行為に対する容認も、謝罪もしないまま米国はもちろん全世界に強大なロビー力を発揮してますます影響力を育てていっている」として「米国が日本の主張を受け入れて国際水路機構(IHO)に"日本海"表記意思を伝達したのが一つの事例」と嘆いた。 彼は引き続き「米国人たちにユダヤ人虐殺や慰安婦問題が同じ反人類犯罪という事実を知らせて糾弾したかった」としながら「それでナチのユダヤ人虐殺を告発するために建てられたホロコーストセンターで展示会を開いた」と付け加えた。

キム理事は昨年ニュージャージー州韓国人タウンのペリセイズパーク市公共図書館前庭に慰安婦決議案を銅版に刻んで「慰安婦キリム碑」を立てたりもした。 彼は「私たちが米主流社会に日本の隠された実体を赤裸々に暴露するならば長期的には東海 と独島(ドクト)問題を解く解決法になることができる」として「来年には慰安婦教育資料を米全域の中・高等学校に普及する」と明らかにした。

キム理事はまた「米主流社会の構成員たちも日本の強大な影響力に臆するほどと吐露する」としながら「こういう日本を相手にした私たちの武器はアメリカ同胞の草の根運動しかない」と強調した。

日本に関する噓を世界にばらまくことに人生をかけている人々がいます。日本に関する噓を世界にばらまくことに資金と人材を投入している国があります。だからこそ、日本に関する真実を世界に伝えるために、もっともっとたくさんの日本人が人生を捧げなければならないと思います。慰安婦問題であれ、竹島問題であれ、彼らを金輪際、完全に黙らせる決定的なコンテンツを日本は持たなければならないと思います。

Military Officers Involved in South Korea Diploma Mill Scandal
Posted by vida
According to Bloomberg Press, reverberations from the South Korea diploma mill scandal have extended throughout the country, with a huge net of investigators snaring over 120 people who faked their credentials to acquire jobs, promotions and prominence. Additional unknown perpetrators remain shaken as they await discovery for listing non-existent college diplomas on their resumes.

Even the military is involved, with 13 officers and 8 officer cadets indicted for using fake college degrees.

In a country where education is exalted and over 90% of high school students aspire to attend college, the ongoing scandal has shaken public confidence in educators who previously enjoyed high esteem and life atop a pedestal.

Our previous updates about this matter — in July, September and October - described a few celebrities who were caught in their own web of deception. But since then, the South Korean authories have worked diligently to sniff out others who have cheated their way up the social ladder of success. Revelations continue to pour out as law enforcement investigators encourage employers to scour the resumes of teachers and career-climbers all over the country.

With so many accredited online schools and traditional universities available, one might wonder why anyone would buy a fake degree from a degree mill. rather than earn it honestly. Nowadays, the risk is growing for those inclined toward cheating in this way; and it only takes an inquisitive employer, a disgruntled co-worker, or a dissatisfied client to begin digging into a person’s credentials.

However, one must also understand that South Korea has one of the most competitive education systems; and a college diploma from a prestigious school opens the doors to guaranteed success and widespread respectability. According to BBC News, South Korea is #1 in the world in people between the ages of 25 to 34 who have earned a college degree. In fact, 97 of this age group hold college degrees. South Korea beat out Norway, Japan, Great Britain and the U.S. for this honor.

South Korea is just one of many countries with a diploma mill problem. But at least they are determined to do something about it.

South Korea Battles Fallout from Fake Diploma Scandals
Posted by vida
As an update to our previous post, the diploma mill scandal in South Korea, has sadly become a soap opera of unexpected magnitude.

Surprisingly, what began as an investigation into bogus college credentials, now involves a widening array of celebrity characters – including a disappearing and reappearing art curator, a presidential official, a popular Buddhist monk (Venerable Ji Gwang), a celebrated actress (Yoon Suk-hwa) and others in business, education, art and entertainment.

Those involved in the scandal have suffered major blows to their reputations and careers amidst revelations about fake college degrees and falsified credentials.

Shin Jeong-ah, the esteemed art curator who was among the first to fall from grace, remains front page news in Korea because she initially fled the country, then returned to face possible criminal charges. Although no charges have yet been filed, the ensuing investigation linked her to then-Senior Presidential Secretary for National Policy, Byeon Yang-kyoon.

He is accused of using his political influence to ensure that Shin, his alleged mistress, would be appointed as director of the largest contemporary art exhibition in Asia, the Gwangju Biennale. Criminal charges may be filed against Byeon Yang-kyoon for influence peddling and other improprieties; and he has since resigned from his government post.

Diploma mill tales are destined for unhappy endings. After all, the lies and deceit can be uncovered at any moment by anyone. Usually, the bogus degree will be discovered at the pinnacle of a career; because at higher levels of responsibility, background and credential checks are more detailed and thorough.

The wise person will choose to earn an accredited online degree , not buy a fake one. Then there is no need to lie awake at night wondering when the axe is going to fall. More than a few major players in this unending drama spent over 30 years building a successful career, only to discover that their house was built on sand rather than on solid rock.

And this storm has brought their walls tumbling down.

More information on this story can be found in the International Herald Tribune, Washington Post, Sydney Morning Herald, and Yale Daily News.

Yale University Entangled in South Korea’s Fake Degree Scandal
Posted by vida

Yale University was hit by a $50 million lawsuit from a top South Korean university for reportedly erroneously confirming that an art history professor earned a Ph.D. there.

This is an unexpected twist in the ongoing fake college degree scandal and the ensuing police investigations that have recently plagued South Korea’s education system.

Two previous blogs, South Korea Battles Fallout from Fake Diploma Scandals and Military Officers Involved in South Korea Diploma Mill Scandal give an overall view of what has been happening.

But following is a compilation of specifics that relate to the Yale lawsuit:

Shin Jeong-ah, 36, falsified the college degrees on her job application and was hired as an art professor by highly-regarded Dongguk University after they reportedly confirmed with Yale’s grad school associate dean that Jeong-ah’s Ph.D. was legitimate.
Jeong-ah’s teaching position at Dongguk, along with a heavily padded resume, contributed to her coveted job appointment as co-director of the 2008 Gwangju Biennale, an internationally renowned event in the contemporary art world. This appointment gave her widespread recognition and prestige throughout South Korea.
Jeong-ah’s appointment to this position was enhanced by her affair with the married Byeon Yang-kyoon, 58, who was the Senior Secretary for Policy Planning as well as the Budget Minister for then President Roh Moo-hyun.
Later, when allegations arose that Jeong-ah’s degrees were bogus, Dongguk contacted Yale again and received a diferent reply stating that Jeong-ah did not receive a Ph.D. from Yale.
Yale then reportedly denied making the earlier confirmation error.
Shin Jeong-ah fled South Korea amidst the revelations of her false credentials, then returned to face criminal charges.
Yale’s denial reportedly contributed to a series of unfortunate circumstances that left Dongguk University with a tarnished reputation, a loss of revenue, a drop in student applications and job losses among its employees.
Yale acknowledged and apologized for the earlier confirmation error.
Byeon Yang-kyoon resigned from his high-level government position for abusing his power to help her receive the Gwangju Biennale appointment. He received a one-year prison sentence, which was reportedly suspended, and must perform 160 hours of community service.
Shin Jeong-ah was sentenced to a year and a half in prison for falsifying her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Kansas and her Ph.D. from Yale, and for embezzling funds from an art museum.
Dongguk University sued Yale University for $50 million for erroneously confirming Jeong-a’s doctoral degree and then denying it.
This unfortunate situation in South Korea is not unique. Its notoriety is due to South Korea’s commitment to excellence in education and the government’s determination to get to core of the problem and fix it.

Fake degrees rest in dry ink on innumerable resumes and job applications throughout the world, including the United States. Diploma mills, businesses that sell fake degrees, make profits in the hundreds of millions each year, yet remain in business due to the ignorance or greed of their customers.

Yale University made a mistake. Dongguk University made a mistake. But Shin Jeong-ah made a choice.
