Azerbaijani ‘‘academy’’ fools a lot of scientists from around the world

Fraudulent “academy” called World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology (WASET) that is registered in Azerbaijan, has managed to fool a huge number of scientists around the world, reports Azerbaijani portal "Haqqin.az" referring to the Egyptian media.

The article reads that in Egypt, a scandal is to erupt around the fictitious scientific academy, which is registered in Azerbaijan. It is reported that in March of this year, the news portals of Egypt have spread information about the sensational discovery of the Egyptian military doctors who had allegedly developed a technology for the treatment of AIDS and hepatitis C. The information said that the technology of Complete Curing Device (CCD) is so versatile that it is able to kill the AIDS and hepatitis viruses in the human body without any therapy.

The authors argued that technology are in the final phase of testing, and will officially be launched on July 1.

"Naturally, such sensational "discoveries" no longer surprise the scientific world; thus no one took seriously this discovery. But in the meantime an interesting detail was found out - the traces of this fraud lead to Azerbaijan,” writes the Haqqin.az.

Commentator of "Al Arabiya" channel Bassem Yusuf writes that the information about the discovery of the Egyptian doctors was published on the website of the World Academy of Science Engineering and Technology (World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology-WASET).

"Despite of its recognized name, this academy is busy only by reprinting the researches of the articles of leading research centers and conducts scientific false conferences. Anyone can submit his article there and then take part in the conference, pre-paying $400," the article reads.

In order to prove that the WASET is a fraudulent network the journalists of “Egypt İndependent” edition hastily prepared a study from clippings of Wikipedia articles and sent it to the academy. In 24 hours, the academy sent a reply that the work has been accepted and the authors will only have to pay $ 400.

According to the article, after a short search the employees of Haqqin.az found out that the fraudulent WASET is registered in Azerbaijan and that it has managed to fool a huge numbers of scientists around the world.
