According to Government Information Office Minister Cheng Wen-tsang (
The MOF scandal involved allegations that the Kaohsiung Customs Office had taken bribes during the bidding process for a patrol vessel maintenance project.
The other case in question concerned a CGA colonel, who was alleged to have been involved in a drink driving case and used a Coast Guard private as a scapegoat.
"After learning of the two stories, we spoke to the MOF and the CGA directly and discovered that the two offices had responded and provided satisfactory explanations to the public. The premier was pleased with the way they were handled," Cheng said.
Cheng said that all Cabinet members must possess the ability to deal with different kinds of crises and accidents.
"In cases like this they do not need any instructions from their superiors. Both the MOF and the CGA did a good job," he said.
"It also means that all Cabinet members paid full attention to what the premier said during the seminar yesterday," he added.
The seminar he referred to was the "seminar for new Cabinet members" which was held on Wednesday night.
During the meeting, the premier had asked all of his Cabinet team members to react quickly and efficiently to any situations that may arise.
He also told the new Cabinet members that "anyone failing to present work of the highest-quality will be relieved of their duties immediately."
