FTimes-STT Report, November 30
Two chief directors- an incumbent and another former- of the Centres for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY Centres) have been convicted for fraudulence and negligence of duties.
The Oulu district court on Friday fined present chief director of North Ostrhobotnia, Matti Räinä EUR 1850 and former chief director of Lapland, Tapani Pöyry EUR 540 along with the money they spent unduly during their visit to Mexico in 2013.
According to the charges, Räinä and Pöyry remained absent most of the time while they participated in a five-day conference in Mexico.
They were present in the conference for only two days while during the rest three days they were in holiday in Yucatan peninsula.
The accused, however, denied the allegations, but admitted their absence in the conference and claimed that they worked in the conference in different ways.
Earlier, the authority suspended Räinä during the trial and the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Employment and the Economy would not decide whether the director would be terminated after the court convicted them  Pöyry already retired from service last year.
