All high-ranking military personnel will be subject to a "sunshine law" requiring government employees to disclose their financial assets to the Control Yuan, an Examination Yuan official said yesterday. The Examination Yuan passed the measure, which made the Public Functionary Assets Disclosure Law (公職人員財產申報法) applicable to ranking major generals and higher, at a meeting yesterday. The measure was intended to make it possible for the public to gauge whether the nation's military leaders had unduly amassed wealth while in office, said Chang Chun-yen (張俊彥), secretary-general of the Examination Yuan. All top officials are expected to report their assets to the Control Yuan's Department of Assets Disclosure for Public Functionaries starting from the beginning of next year, Chang said. Previously, only heads of military command units and military personnel in charge of procurement, construction, auditing and supervisory affairs were required to disclose their assets.
