July 13, 2016 (Koror) “When elected officials and employees are carrying out their official duties for the Republic’s benefit, they must be provided adequate support in all aspects including defense against legal claims. If such is not provided, then the Republic runs the risk of not receiving the best services from its elected officials and employees because of fear of consequence and lack of adequate support from the government,” stated President Remengesau Jr. in response to a question why the government is reimbursing VP Bells legal expenses in the recently passed budget.
