Spain’s president denies plagiarising PhD thesis

Pedro Sánchez, the president of Spain, has said that he will openly publish his PhD thesis to help refute accusations—which he denies—that it was plagiarised.

In a statement posted on Twitter on 13 September, Sánchez said that accusations made by Spanish media that he had plagiarised parts of his PhD thesis were “outright false”. He said he would take legal action against the media unless the accusations were taken down.

On the same day, Sánchez said in a statement posted on Facebook that he would publish his thesis openly in its entirety on 14 September to facilitate access to it. It was already deposited in a university library where it was accessible to everyone, he said.
