National Defence chief quits over dodgy qualifications row
Portugal’s Civil Protection chief, Rui Esteves, has quit after it was discovered that he may well have claimed qualifications to which he was not entitled. He was asked to quit – or be fired.
Esteves also faces earlier accusations that he had two public sector jobs, when allowed only one, but finally quit today after hearing that the Minister of Higher Education and the head of Castelo Branco Poly had asked the General Inspectorate of Education to check on whether he actually had earned the degree which he claimed.
