Prior to his own dismissal as minister of rural affairs on Monday, Mart Järvik (EKRE) also dismissed his advisers Maido Pajo and Mart Ummelas, paying each of them a bonus as well.
Pajo, with whom an employment contract was concluded on April 29, the day Prime Minister Jüri Ratas' (Centre) second government was sworn into office, received a bonus equal to one month's salary, or €2,400, for "good professional achievements."
Ummelas, who was hired on Aug. 26, likewise received a bonus equal to one month's pay, or €2,000, and with the same justification.
Both ex-advisers will also receive financial compensation for unused vacation days.
Järvik's last day in office as minister of rural affairs was Nov. 25.
