Jakarta Deputy Governor Sandiaga Uno has said he will question city secretary Saefullah over a report that a retired official did not get his salary. 

The former agency head, who was dismissed from his post and is now retired, previously complained that nearly a month after his dismissal he had yet to receive an official letter of his dismissal. He said he was also not paid. 

"I will check with the city secretary. However, all their rights are supposed to be honored," Sandiaga told reporters at City Hall on Monday as quoted by kompas.com

The former head, who requested anonymity, said he, along with other dismissed officials, felt uncertain about their future.

The administration has been demoting officials recently in what it claims is a move to improve services to the public. However, the decision sparked controversy as the State Civilian Bureaucracy Commission (KASN) alleged that there had been maladministration in the implementation of the policy. 

The city reportedly failed to show the assessment reports of the officials when the KASN probed the case. (fac)
