The leak of a government document about civil servants’ pay next year will be investigated, the Executive Yuan said yesterday.
The Directorate-General of Personnel Administration on Tuesday announced that the Cabinet had decided on July 21 not to give civil servants and military personnel a pay raise next year.
A copy of the document that the directorate submitted to Premier Lin Chuan (林全) about the decision was posted on Facebook on Thursday by National Civil Servant Association president Harry Lee (李來希).
Lee, who has led several protests against the government’s pension reform plans, on Saturday said that on Friday night he received a call from someone saying the Executive Yuan had started to investigate the leak and “and the caller urgently sought my help.” [FULL STORY]
