Health inspection worker accused of pocketing public money

Suspect allegedly stole €12,900 collected by Limassol's Public Health Services


A worker at Limassol’s Public Health Services was set to appear in court on Thursday in connection with the theft of public money to the tune of approximately 13 grand.

According to Kathimerini Cyprus, a 49-year-old male employee at Limassol district’s Health Inspection department was handcuffed by police officers Wednesday morning following a complaint that he stole a total of €12,900 from his workplace.

The town’s Health Inspector in charge filed the complaint with police, accusing the suspect of robbing the department between January 5 and September 25 this year. The stolen money was coming from various sources, including fees and fines paid non-electronically to the city, and should have been deposited in the Health Ministry’s bank account, according her complaint.

The suspect was set to appear before a Limassol District Court on Thursday for his remand hearing. He is expected to face charges related to bribery, abuse of authority, and making illegal gains.
