South Korean ex-postman jailed after dumping 16,000 pieces of mail, saying he was overworked

SEOUL - A former South Korean postman received a six-month prison sentence and was suspended for two years for dumping 16,003 pieces of mail, a court said on March 21.

The 37-year-old defendant, surnamed Lee, who was delivering mail in Gangseo-gu, western Seoul, was found to have discarded the mail between January 2021 and September 2022.

The Seoul Southern District Court found Lee guilty of violating Article 48 of the Postal Service Act, which stipulates that any person engaging in postal services who damages or abandons postal items without justifiable cause can be punished by up to five years in prison or a fine of up to 50 million won (S$50,450).

Lee told officials that he had committed the crime because of the stress of being overworked, which was a result of his colleagues being subject to isolation after being diagnosed with Covid-19 during the pandemic.

Lee was fired from his job after his crimes came to light.

"Employers are always seeking more productivity from workers, without considering the human factor, the worker's age, the weather conditions and the intense heat. We need to intervene before it's too late, reducing working hours and the load carried by workers, because it's impossible to sustain the rhythm they're forced to work at for many years."

He could repay his debt to society by prepping in D2D leaflets on everyone else's frames ?

That would be punishment to fit his crimes :cuppa
