Iranian Interior Minister's Oxford Degree Apparently Fake, Riddled With Spelling Errors

Oxford issued a statement Wednesday denying it ever awarded Ali Kordan an honorary doctorate of law, as he claimed to parliament before it approved his appointment to the post earlier this month.
I'm betting he got his degree from the University of Feenicks. Heh™
