Professor convicted over accepting bribes to pass students

A professor at the University of Macedonia in northern Greece has been suspended following his conviction for seeking under-the-table-payments from students who wanted to pass his class.

The academic, also known as “the grosser” among his colleagues, had set a price tag ranging from 250 euros for a 6, 300 euros for an 8 and 400 euros for a top mark (10).

Greece’s Supreme Court recently upheld an 18-month sentence for bribe-taking ruled by a Thessaloniki court.
