After exposing major corruption case | Security authorities arrest four including a woman working in educational institution in Deir Ezzor

Deir Ezzor province: A security patrol of the regime forces arrested several owners of offices, after the involvement of the Deputy Director of Education in Deir Ezzor with selling school materials that were received from an educational institution.

According to reliable SOHR sources, the stolen items comprise books, notebooks and pens, where they were sold to libraries in the city for half their real value.

Four employees of the educational institution including the Deputy Director were referred to investigation after being dismissed, where the value of the stolen items were estimated at tens of billions of Syrian Liras, while at least 10,000 students were deprived of these supplies.

Influential people working within public institutions exploit humanitarian aid from organizations operating in the city of Deir ez-Zor, whether food or material, to benefit from it in cooperation with members and officers of the regime forces, which negatively affects the arrival of this aid to those who need it in the region.
