It’s common knowledge that Taleb Obaid was ‘removed’ from his position as Head of HCT’s Human Resources and banished to RAK because of the malice and incompetence that he showed towards departing employees.
In many cases he actually broke the UAE’s federal laws by declaring employees as ‘absconding’ merely for refusing to accept his illegally calculated EOS settlement. In fact, he was almost entirely responsible for creating the situation that caused HCT to be dragged through the nation’s courts on account of the college’s shameless attempts to break federal laws and impose illegal EOS payments.
However, what is less well-known is that the man himself, as unscrupulous and corrupt as you can imagine, was also responsible for a massive cheating scandal at HCT that was successfully hushed up – until now!
SuedeO has received confirmer reports that 48 of HCT’s students were involved in a grade-changing scandal in which a high-ranking employee, later identified as Taleb Obaid, arranged to change several grades and remove certain courses from transcripts. In all, some 139 grade alterations were made, courses were removed from transcripts in 122 cases, and courses were added in 31 cases.
Initially it was reported that a since-dismissed lower grade employee had changed grades in exchange for ‘gifts’ offered directly by the students involved. None of these miscreants were apparently expelled, whereas some did have their diplomas temporarily revoked, and others were permitted to return to their studies.
However, further digital forensic inquiries revealed that the unprincipled shenanigans all came from the office of no less than the college’s Head of HR, Taleb Obaid! The slippery TO at first attempted to implicate others, but it was soon confirmed that he and he alone was indeed the author of the immoral transgressions. Nevertheless, it became impossible to make any charges of bribery, which is a federal crime, to stick; academic dishonesty, though, is merely unethical, and not a criminal offense.
So Taleb Obaid gets packed off to RAK, to masquerade as ‘Senior Manager of Campus Support’, rather than being marched off to prison.
Can you believe it? Only at HCT!
