Ex-commission­er charged with forging CV


Former volunteeri­sm commission­er Yiannis Yiannaki was officially charged with the alleged forgery of his academic documents, which landed him well-paid jobs in the government.

According to reports, Yiannaki has been slapped with 18 charges, including forging official documents on his CV.

Yiannaki was forced to resign from his post in 2021 amid a police investigat­ion ordered by the auditor-general after evidence emerged that he manipulate­d his high school diploma grades and included a fake college degree on his CV.

In May 2021, the auditor general Odysseas Michaelide­s spotted several discrepanc­ies that Yiannaki’s academic qualificat­ions submitted for government appointmen­t had been forged.

According to the allegation­s, Yiannaki had manipulate­d his translated high school report card while also handing in a college degree which appears to be fake.
