The Czech Telecommunications Office has slapped Czech Post with a record 1.4 million crown fine for failing to deliver hundreds of items of mail to customers’ home addresses. Audits in several Prague suburbs revealed that postal employees often made no attempt to deliver letters and packages in person as they should, merely leaving a note in people’s mailboxes that the respective delivery could be picked up at the local post office. The audits were made on the grounds of numerous complaints. Czech Post has 3,300 outlets around the country and makes approximately half a billion deliveries annually.
