INTERNATIONAL: Civil servant who did no work for six years found out by officials preparing to reward him for ‘long service’

BBpq48tMSN – A Spanish civil servant who did no work for six years has been fined almost €27,000 (£21,000) after his long absence was finally noticed.

Officials in Cádiz were preparing to hand Joaquín García an award for long service when inquiries revealed the true extent of his contribution to the local authority.

In 1990, he was given a €37,000-a-year post at the Aguas de Cádiz public utilities provider, Spain’s El Mundo newspaper reported.

Jorge Blas Fernandez, who served as the city’s deputy mayor from 1995 to 2015, said he was given an office in the municipal building and no more was heard for more than a decade.

“We thought the water company was supervising him but that was not the case,” he added.

“We found out when we were about to present him with a commemorative plaque for 20 years of service.”

  1. How many persons who continue to be on our Treasury’s payroll have stopped working after getting jobs in our Civil Service?

  2. Sounds exactly like St. Lucia. How many civil servants do you know who have 2 jobs. They come and sign in the morning and leave for the other job. How many civil servants use all government equipment and supplies to run their own business and magazines and pocket the monies. How many of these civil servants are protected by those above as far as the PMs office.

    It is time that all civil servants are like the rest of the regular work force and be able to be fired on the spot. NO protection of the civil service. Too often this is happening.

    St. Lucians its time to put a stop to this nonsense.
