Wikileaks: Assad funds key aide's PhD

Published: 07.08.12, 10:03 / Israel News

The Wikileaks website has uncovered that one of Britain's leading universities is set to award a prestigious degree to a key aide of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, who had been paying for her studies. Britain's Daily Mail reported that Lamis Omar has been studying for

a doctorate at Durham, and is likely to receive her PhD in September.


Emails obtained by the Wikileaks website suggest that Ms Omar enjoys a close friendship with Assad.Fellow students say she had a large picture of the dictator on the wall of her home in the university grounds. Officials at Durham University refused to say whether the institution has accepted money from the Assad regime in tuition fees. (Ynet)
