The defense ministry says it will offer financial rewards to tipsters who provide information about drug
abuse at an air force base in Taichung. That’s the word from Defense Minister Feng Shih-kuan on Monday.
During his inspection of the air force base, Feng demanded that soldiers take the reputation of the military seriously. Feng also said individual whistleblowers will receive a financial reward of NT$100,000 (US$3,333) and that groups will be offered NT$500,000 (US$16,666) for information about drug abuse.
The move came after 51 small bags of amphetamine were found at the air force base a week ago. So far, 20 soldiers have tested positive following urine tests. [FULL STORY]
