Govt spends $1.6 million per month to pay officials convicted of graft.  The National Civil Service Agency revealed that of the 2,674 civil servants that were convicted of corruption, 317 were dishonorably dismissed, meaning the remaining 2,357 are still active as civil servants and, therefore, still get a monthly salary.
