Verdict exam fraud case Ibn Ghaldoun
The case of exam fraud in the islamic school Ibn Ghaldoun in Rotterdam, will today receive a verdict. The case involves students of the school in Rotterdam who stole exams from school grounds with the intention of selling them. The prosecutor demanded two weeks ago that the 11 suspects, including two minors, be given conditional jail sentences and community service. If the judge imposes the proposed sentences, it will mean no jail-time for the accused, because the sentences will already have been carried out during custody. The defense contended that the sentence requirements are far too high. The defense also claims that no consideration has been made as to the damage the suspects underwent through all the media attention. The verdict will be given today at 1 p.m.
