HALF a dozen Junta bosses have been accused of embezzling funds from a ?2.6 million payout to help 24 unemployed workers from the company Surcolor.

In yet another chapter of the multi-million-euro ERE fraud case, over a million was apparently syphoned off.

Those benefiting included two relatives of the officials, who got paid while not even working for the company.

They are among 16 accused of pocketing funds, alongside Junta employment chiefs Antonio Fernandez, Augustine Barbera and Antonio Rivas.
