He charged Roma Capitale – in the form of overtime – for the time spent on the street, perhaps stuck in traffic, to get to and from the office, 20 kilometers away from his home. Antonio DG, a former municipal employee, over the course of more than a year (from 2 January 2014 to 10 April 2015), had stamped the card in a location much closer to his residential address, in the Torre Angela district, instead of in that of Largo Lamberto Loria, in Garbatella, where he worked. For this he was condemned last September by the Court of Auditors of Lazio to compensate the Capitol for more than 7,200 euros: one half for the financial damage caused to the body by his conduct and one half for the damage to the image of the administration.
The 56-year-old accused “has collected, as shown by the court documents, 343 hours of overtime, then paid him by Roma Capitale, and 211 hours of recovery, evidently compensated by the same number of hours he did not work”. He turned out to be a “crafty creative tag”, since he had devised an imaginative system to circumvent the administration, stamping “at 4 other municipal offices, including mainly in one located in viale Duilio Cambelotti 11, a couple of kilometers from his home “. An arbitrary choice of the employee, since his normal place of employment has never been changed.
“Moreover – the sentence reads – there is no evidence regarding the circumstance according to which the defendant, once stamped at a municipal complex other than the office in Largo Loria to which he was assigned, continued his journey “. The accused had already been sentenced in criminal proceedings, in the first and second degree, to 9 months’ imprisonment for continued fraud; while in the disciplinary stage he was sanctioned with dismissal without notice.
