All three were taken into custody. They face up to 15 years in prison.
Appropriation of entrusted property in the amount of almost PLN 2.5 million – these were the charges heard by three officials who were detained by policemen from Chełm.
On Tuesday (April 26), the court, at the request of the police and the District Prosecutor’s Office in Lublin, imposed a three-month arrest on them.
Police: they have made themselves an additional source of income
“Women aged 50, 47 and 42 made an additional source of income from the obtained subsidies. The money was to be transferred to social benefits for the charges of the Social Welfare Center in the Włodawa district” – writes senior sergeant Angelika Głąb-Kunysz from the Municipal Police Headquarters in Chełm.
She adds that the officials “came in” because the data contradicted the actual expenses.
