The Minister of Labor and Public Service is urging senior government officials to observe ethical standard in their work.

The message was addressed to the undersecretaries and director generals in various ministries.

It comes amid reports that some senior officials leak confidential government information.

Minister Ngor Kolang Ngor, says handling government information is a national responsibility and officials must also observe ethical standard while performing their duties.

Addressing participants during the opening of a two-day workshop on good governance, Mr. Kolang, also said senior officials must keep government information confidential.

“You will find some very important documents in the streets, I think you must take care. You are the custodians of that document,” he said.

“If you leak it out without permission from the court or from Attorney General, it is a crime, frankly speaking.”

The Chairperson of Civil Service Commission, Philister Baya, said the commission and the Ministry of Labour must set standards for the civil servants to follow.

The two day- workshop being organized by the Civil Service Commission in collaboration with the Ministry of Labour and Public Service ends today.
