Prime Minister John Briceño was asked about it by the media and Monday and said that the Cabinet Secretary will likely have to speak to Perez about refunding the money he received because a decision had been taken and was not to receive pay. According to Briceño, the decision was not properly relayed down the chain of command.

Several weeks later, however, a leaked payslip showed that Perez was, in fact, still receiving his usual salary. Cabinet Secretary Stuart Leslie later explained that he had failed to inform the Finance Officer of Perez’s unpaid leave.
