The same rules stipulate that, in handling such complaints, the Control Yuan shall set up a member-on-duty to enable members to take turns reviewing such complaints on a daily basis.The member on duty shall, based on the facts contained in a written complaint, decide whether to refer it to the member in charge for investigation, commission a relevant organization to investigate, or handle it in any other appropriate manner. However, if the case does not fall under the jurisdiction of the Control Yuan, the complaint shall be rejected. After a complaint is processed, the Department of Supervisory Operations of the Control Yuan, will, as a rule, inform the complainant in writing.
