Lyonpo Ngeema Sangay Tshempo resumed office and took over the official functions as the Minister of Labour and Human Resources from today. Since 5th January 2018, he was on leave of absence, while the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) investigated various training programs of the Ministry. Lyonpo Ngeema Sangay Tshempo had volunteered to stay on leave while the investigation was being carried out in order to ensure independent investigation by the ACC.
The Government is grateful to Lyonpo Ngeema for taking leave of absence thereby allowing the ACC to investigate the case without any real or perceived intervention from the minister.
The Government is also grateful to the secretary, Directors and Officials of the Ministry of Labour and Human Resources for providing full support to the Prime Minister when he officiated as the Minister for Labour and Human Resources.
