The Supreme Court ordered on Monday the adjournment of a notification restoring the services of a Pakistan post employee accused of embezzling Rs24,000.
The court also issued notices to the respondents in the case. The post office’s lawyer told the court that the employee was fired in 2016 for embezzling funds.
A service tribunal investigated the case and directed that this employment should be restored. They added that two years should be deducted from the person’s work experience.
The government was given back the amount embezzled by the accused employee.
The case has been adjourned indefinitely, according to sources.
