153 government employees face overtime probe

Presidential office under fire for overtime abuses


After the issue of overtime pay arose with Deputy Government Spokesperson Doxa Komodromou, all Presidential staff will come under the scrutiny of the Audit Service, including relatives and friends of the presidential couple, as reported by Philenews.

According to journalist Michalis Hatzistilianou's report, the Audit Service has decided to investigate the 153 public employees and advisors of the Presidential Office to determine who is receiving overtime pay and whether it is justified.

The total of 153 employees staff the offices of the commissioners, the negotiator's office, the Service for Expatriates and Repatriated Persons, the Service for Missing Persons and Hostages, the Technical Committee for Cultural Heritage, and the Investigative Committee for Missing Persons.

As stated in the report, the Presidential Office employs 41 public sector employees on secondment, in addition to presidential advisors, whom the Presidency is currently concealing from Parliament, as it has approved funds to cover their salaries until the end of the year.
