Investigating "Kristal University" diplomas
The Tirana Prosecution has seized a series of documents at the “Kristal
University”, which will undergo full verifications for revealing the
truth behind the graduation of the son of Umberto Bossi, the leader of
the Lega Nord (Northern League). Renzo Bossi was reported a few days ago
by the Italian media of having bought a diploma at this university, but
the Prosecution is also investigating other cases of Albanian students.
Unofficial sources say that the Tirana Prosecution has filed the criminal investigation for falsification of official documents.
The investigations will be led by the Task Force Unit, which will verify if there are falsifications or not, based on Renzo Bossi’s registration as a student, and until his graduation.
Two days after the verifications of the suspicions raised by the media, the Prosecutors declared that the criminal investigations have started.
However, the publication of this scandal by the Italian and Albanian media, the Kristal University reacted that Renzo Bossi has been registered based on the documentation presented at the administration of this academy for the academic year 2007-2008, according to the laws in power.
The Italian media declared that Bossi has been graduated from high school in 2009 in Italy, and in 2010 he has been graduated in Tirana for a three year business management course, while he has never been in Tirana. The first suspicions are that the diploma has been sold, not only for the two Italian citizens, but also for other Albanian students.
However, now it will be up to the prosecutors to verify if Renzo Bossi has continued three years of university in Tirana, before receiving the Diploma. The Napoli and Milan prosecutions declared that Bossi was graduated on 8 October 2010.
