Two employees from the Electricity Authority of Cyprus have been formally suspended, EAC spokeswoman Christina Papadopoulou confirmed on Thursday.
Following the board’s decision earlier this week, notices had been sent to the employees who have now signed the suspension, valid for 30 days.
The two employees are suspected of tampering with and upgrading a meter in Pyla in an establishment destined as an illegal gaming house.
Papadopoulou said the EAC chief had also ordered a disciplinary investigation expected to last 30 days, reflecting the number of days they have been suspended for.
His decision followed a review of an earlier investigation where EAC employees in Larnaca gathered evidence for the case.
