Anyone who corrects the figures in the certificate can end up before the regional court: this is evident from the case of a Tyrolean woman who was fined in Salzburg on Wednesday for falsifying documents.
A Tyrolean woman wanted to make her way to university easier by forging her semester reports: she improved her grades to save herself exams at night school. However, because certificates are particularly protected documents, the woman received a letter from the public prosecutor’s office.
She admitted the charge of forgery at the trial on Wednesday in the Salzburg Regional Court: “I’m really sorry.” The judge emphasized that this is “not a trivial offense” and issued a fine of 560 euros. The verdict is not final.
