State health department workers suspended over absences

Employees allegedly walked off job to run personal errands

(ANSA) - Vibo Valentia, April 24 - Seventeen employees with a State health department (ASL) in the southern Calabrian town of Pizzo were suspended for two months on aggravated fraud charges on Thursday.
    The workers - including managers, clerks and nurses - regularly walked off their jobs to run personal errands or did not go to work asking colleagues to punch in for them, Carabinieri police said.
    The suspension was ordered by a judge after a two-year investigation by local prosecutors.
