Pension fund employee suspected of embezzlement suspended


The Single Social Security Entity (EFKA), the country’s new unified pension fund, Tuesday announced the suspension of an employee at the fund’s branch in Patra, western Greece, in connection with the embezzlement of more than 100,000 euros from EFKA.

Announcing the findings of an investigation into the embezzlement, EFKA said the probe was being extended to determine whether other workers at the fund may also have been involved in siphoning away money.
