Two University of Prishtina professors, who in the past were revealed and "judged" for plagiarism, are now elected members of the Governing Council of the UP. Among the five members of Council, elected by the University Senate, is Beqir Sadikaj, whose plagiarism was confirmed, and was demoted from Associate Professor to an Assistant.
However, the decision was later repealed. The other member of the Council, Zeqir Veselaj, managed to nostrificate the title awarded to him by the University of Tirana, although the Committee of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences gave him a negative mark on his research. Newspaper Zeri has provided documents that prove plagiarism committed by both professors.
Based on these documents, professor Beqir Sadikaj's academic title in 2007 was degraded from Associate Professor to Assistant Professor, because of certified plagiarism in his book "Legal Sociology".
