Union calls situation 'unacceptable'

Retired Italian cop's monthly pension slashed to two euros

Catanzaro, March 20 - A former top official of Italy's corrections police saw his monthly pension slashed to two euros from an expected 1,686 euros, sparking complaints by the retired commander's colleagues. The case occurred in Lamezia Terme, in southern Italy, and was referred to the penitentiary police officers' union, which said the pensioner's situation was particularly critical given the current economic recession. The union contested the slimmed-down monthly pension packet - itself the result of a back taxes claim - saying that "what occurred is unacceptable" and that the incident could have been avoided had the pensioner been alerted to the claim in time to request a payback plan in installments.
