An employee of the City of Vienna issued parking stickers and sold them illegally. The man, who has been dismissed, is suspected of issuing them for owners of garages and non-residents. The damage is estimated to be around 80,000 Euros.
The man was apparently working at the magistrate in Leopoldstadt, Vienna, and is suspected of issuing parking stickers for non-residents, owners of garages, businessmen and commuters.
Rudolf Gerlich, a spokesman of the head office of the magistrate, confirmed the report of the "Kronen Zeitung".
Apparently, the man sold stickers, which were valid for two years, for 200 Euros each. The man was revealed in the course of controls and reported immediately.
The State Prosecutor’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Anti-Corruption are still investigating.
The man is suspected of having issued up to 400 parking stickers. Due to the investigations in process, the magistrate did not want to confirm the damage to be 80,000 Euros.
Mr Gerlich said that the magistrate was going to adjust certain processes in order to avoid similar cases in the future.
