THE Public Prosecutor’s Office in Malaga is requesting three years in jail for a postwoman accused of throwing letters in the bin instead of delivering them.
A €5,760 fine and a five-year ban from work have also been requested for the woman, who allegedly threw 241 envelopes into bins on March 11, 2013.
The prosecutor’s report declares that the woman was employed by the post office to cover for the usual postman on the day events occurred.
The accused was ordered to open the post office, deal with customers and deliver post in one area of Riogordo from 8.30am to 3.30pm.
Although the postman covering deliveries in the second area of the village handed over a box of letters he had collected from Colmenar for her to deliver, she allegedly shoved them into two bags and threw them into rubbish bins at the entrance to the village, the report states.
The bags of post were found the following morning by a municipal worker, who handed them in at the Guardia Civil station in Velez Malaga.
