Ohec outlaws WPU's use of honorary degrees

- +

The World Peace University (WPU) announced its sudden closure in Thailand yesterday with its last attempt to grant honorary degrees here foiled by officials. 

"There is no more World Peace University in Thailand. I feel unsafe to do educational tasks here, so I will do them in other countries instead," WPU rector Sawat Banterngsook said.

Participants at a reception organised by the ‘‘Universal Ministries of Thailand’’ receive honorary certificates at a hotel in Nonthaburi and pose for a group photo. Later, they were asked by an officer from the Department of Special Investigation to take off their gowns since they had also been used by the illegal World Peace University.
