Over the past seven years they’ve been claiming social security payments worth almost CHF 250,000.

The court heard the husband worked for a company owned by his father in Le Locle and hid his pay in cash in the house.

The court has ordered the money to be repaid and added a CHF 6,000 fine. They’ve also been given a three-year suspended prison sentence.
