A PORTUGUESE city suspended its police chief for sending a Christmas email greeting to its entire municipal workforce which contained images of scantily clad women and seasonal wishes for a great sex life.
Euclides Santos, police chief in the central Portuguese city of Coimbra, accidentally emailed his colleagues a powerpoint presentation which wished them a merry Christmas and then displayed several women wearing lingerie and bikinis.
"What I wish you from the bottom of my heart, is that you have incredible sexual relations, live a merry and happy life, work hard and get well paid," read part of the presentation shown on television.
City mayor Joao Barbosa de Melo believes that, because it was sent during work hours and from his work email that Mr Santos should lose his job.
