Two Crown Prosecution Service employees, Lisa Burrows, 41, Oldbury, and Tahir Mahmood, 50, Hodge Hill, have pleaded guilty to fraud by abuse of position after making false claims for taxi fares worth more than £1 million.
Brian Dean, prosecuting, informed the court that investigators are still trying to trace the money and asked Judge Nicholas Webb for the case to be adjourned until 4 July.
Mr Dean said: "There is not, at the moment, any explanation for where the money has gone. A financial analyst is considering all the information so that a sentencing judge can be given a very clear idea of precisely what has happened to the money."
The pair will be sentenced in July, and have been warned to expect ‘inevitable’ jail terms.
