German plagiarism scandal widens - Europe, World - The Independent

German plagiarism scandal widens - Europe, World - The Independent: "The European Parliament’s vice president has become the latest among a growing number of high profile German politicians to face allegations that they plagiarised large amounts of other people’s academic work in order to obtain a university doctorate.

The current charges concern Silvana Koch-Mehrin, a well-known German liberal Free Democrat politician and Euro MP who holds the post of European parliamentary vice president. She stands accused of “copying” 25 percent of her doctoral thesis on currency reform obtained in 2000.

Mrs Koch-Mehrin has flatly refused to comment on the allegations which have surfaced less than a month after Germany’s highly popular conservative defence minister, Karl Theodor zu Guttenberg, was forced to resign his post amid a plagiarism scandal."
