Businessman in Tenerife Faces Two-Year Prison Sentence for Alleged Payroll Falsification


A request for a two-year prison term has been made by the Public Prosecutor’s Office in Santa Cruz de Tenerife for a businessman accused of attempted procedural fraud and falsification of private documents, specifically, three pay slips.

Following a complaint by a former employee against the defendant, the labour court initiated proceedings in relation to the case.

The ex-employee was seeking arrears in salary and overtime from his previous employer.

During the trial, the accused presented allegedly falsified documents in an attempt to mislead the judge and secure a favourable outcome, as stated by the prosecution.

These documents purported to be signed pay slips by the complainant, but investigations revealed that the employee’s signature had been forged, according to the Prosecutor’s Office.

The trial is set to commence next week at the Provincial Court of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
