59% and done

Mr. 11jigen (meaning 11 dimensions), the owner of Japanese blog, has finally sent out an official accusation (in Japanese) on massive plagiarisms in Dr. Anilir's Ph. D. thesis. He even attached over 70 printed reference materials (mostly plagiarized sources). The accusation was cosigned by Mr. 781, who had earlier sent an accusation on Dr. Anilir's use of research grant.  At this moment, 59%(!!) of the thesis is identified as plagiarisms.

It was received by the University of Tokyo administration on November 30th. Great Job, Mr. 11jigen! Many other people also contributed to the investigation of Dr. Anilir's thesis.
