An Italian hospital worker has been labelled the ‘King of absentees’ after breaking the national record by allegedly skipping work for 15 years.

Now aged 67, the man managed to “earn” a salary amounting to a totalling €538,000 (£464,000) despite not turning up to work at Pugliese Ciaccio hospital in the Calabrian city of Catanzaro since 2005. casino888

The man allegedly made threats against the hospital director stopping her from filing a disciplinary report over his absenteeism, a problem rife in Italy’s public sector.

The director then retired and his attendance was never checked by the director’s successor or the human resources department, police said.

In 2016 the government fortified laws after several high-profile police investigations revealed just how rampant absenteeism was across the public sector.

The jigg is most certainly up for the “King”, who now faces charges of abuse of office, forgery and aggravated extortion brought on by evidence from attendance and salary records as well as witness statements from colleagues. موقع قمار اون لاين

The investigation code named “Part Time” stretches even further with a total of 6 managers being looked at on suspicion of enabling his absenteeism.
