Silence, complicit and evasive. Since the Government chose yesterday by the silence as a response to the case of the thesis plagiarized by Conception Canoyra and led to his immediate resignation as director-general of Education Concert of the Community of Madrid. Despite being a political opponent and being immersed already in the election campaign the socialists avoided to assess the news. As they also did in the cases that hit the president of the Senate, Manuel Cruz. But prominent leaders definitely defended him.
A query of this newspaper has not wanted to assess the case Canoyra. And is that the parallelism with the case of the thesis of Pedro Sanchez is evident. Canoyra presented his thesis the same week that the current president of the Government on functions presented yours and in the same department. From the Camilo José Cela University has refused to meet the demands of ABC in which were some documents referred to the thesis of Canyora as well as a reaction to the exclusive ABC.
however, the Agency EFE, citing sources from the university, she claimed that the centre had reviewed "the entire process of assessment on the existing documentation of the doctoral thesis of Canoyra in the centre," and by so doing, I had noticed the "normal" process, according to the existing legislation and the protocols of verification and control common at the university level. Yes mark distances by putting the accent on that that Canoyra not played any responsible academic or teaching in the centre.
questions from the ABC, from the ministry of Science and Universidadades downloaded responsibilities on the grounds that "corresponds to the routine inspection of the Autonomous Communities to ensure the compliance of the standards of its higher education system". Also claim that is not convenient to "generalize" for cases like this and defend "the quality of the Spanish university system in your set is proven".
From the Conference of university Rectors escudaron in that they did not have "sufficient data" to assess the news. But it was declared that "plagiarism has always been condemned by the universities because it is a practice against academic integrity" and say that "they are developing internal methods to fight against this malpractice".Updated Date: 04 October 2019, 11:00
