ananyo (2519492) writes "In a revelation that could bring down the country's government, Romania's Prime Minister, Victor Ponta, stands accused of copying large sections of his 2003 PhD thesis in law from previous publications, without proper reference.
Documents compiled by an anonymous whistle-blower indicating that more than half of Ponta’s 432-page, Romanian-language thesis on the functioning of the International Criminal Court consists of duplicated text.
Last month, the country's education and research minister, computer scientist Ioan Mang, .resigned following accusations of plagiarism in at least eight papers."
