SHAH ALAM : The government does not intend to victimise anyone when cutting the costs of administration, says the Prime Minister.

Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said that the case of the 52 participants who were dropped while undergoing a special course to become Administration and Diplomatic Officers (PTD) has been investigated before the decision was made.

"We have investigated this case. We do not want anyone to become victims in our efforts to lower the costs of administrating the country," said Dr Mahathir.

It was reported recently by news portals that those who were dropped include four contract workers who are now jobless and 48 civil servants who are forced to return to their old jobs.

The Prime Minister said this at the 21st Union of Pos Malaysia Uniformed Staff (UPUS) Delegation Conference held here on Wednesday (Dec 5).
