The department of Public Service and Administration says government needs to close the loopholes which allow the employment of people with criminal records as civil servants.
The department was reacting to a Public Service Commission finding that 223 people with criminal records are employed in the public service.
In a report released this week the PSC said 166 of these employees held positions in 14 national departments.
