A woman suspected of swindling more than $100,000 from Employment Insurance (EI) appeared in provincial court in St. John's this morning.
Colleen Esteves is charged with fraud over $5,000 and breach of trust.
The 52-year-old reportedly defrauded Service Canada of the money between January 2006 and August 2010 while she worked in a human resources position.
Duty counsel Jane Fitzpatrick told Judge Greg Brown that Esteves is in the process of getting a lawyer. She and Crown prosecutor Phil LeFeuvre agreed to postpone the case for another month.
The case is due back in court March 20.
