Public sector salary payment hit by glitch

Minister at the Prime Minister’s Office and Minister of Finance and Economy II Dato Seri Setia Dr Awang Haji Mohd Amin Liew bin Abdullah said yesterday the half-salary payment to civil servants has been affected by a glitch to the new system recently adopted by the ministry.

The minister said the Treasury Department is currently working closely with the system’s developer, adding that the salary will be paid directly into the account once the issue has been ironed out.

The ministry will ensure that such an incident does not happen again, he said.
