The Presidential Office yesterday dismissed claims that high-ranking officials at the Presidential Office had received bonuses of more than NT$10 million over the past six years. The Presidential Office issued a statement yesterday saying that it was a common practice dating back to 1967 that high-ranking officials at the Presidential Office receive a cash bonus on top of their monthly salaries. Despite a measure decreed by the Executive Yuan regulating the payment of civil servants, teachers and military personnel in June 1977, the Presidential Office obtained the approval of the Executive Yuan and the Ministry of Audit under the Control Yuan to offer more favorable packages to high-ranking officials at the Presidential Office.
