SEC sacks 3 employees for corruption

The Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) has fired three of its employees, while a fourth is currently under investigation for corruption charges.
Ziad Al-Sheha, CEO of the company, dispatched an e-mail to all the employees explaining the circumstances that prompted the company’s latest decision.
Al-Sheha said the company conducted internal investigations prior to taking the decision to dismiss the three employees. In the first instance, he noted, the company terminated their contract with one of the employees because he had been illegally connecting electricity to subscribers’ houses and had engaged a commercial register to work as a contractor.
“The second employee was sacked for violating regulations related to subscriber services, while the third was fired for not following the company’s safety requirements, which led to the death of a worker. The final case is currently under investigation,” he added.
