Neuchatel cantonal worker faces jail for fraud
A former Neuchatel cantonal employee has been arrested on suspicion of embezzling CHF 4m over 15 years.
Investigators say the last fraudulent payment was last month, when he transferred CHF 100,000 to his family.
The last payment was made just before his retirement. The man had been a highly respected worker for the past few decades.
He’s now in custody and police say he doesn’t dispute the charges. He faces 10 years in jail.
