More public transport workers fired over false certificates

The state-run company that manages Attica’s buses and trolley buses, OSY, on Tuesday announced the dismissal of another 35 members of staff after an ongoing internal investigation revealed they had secured their jobs by submitting false certificates.

The dismissals bring the number of public transport staff dismissed due to fraudulent applications to 135.

The number is set to rise as only 3,000 out of a total of 5,000 applications have been inspected by authorities so far.
