OPM denies Sunday Times story on Tax Compliance Unit head

Sunday, 29 May 2016, 13:08 Last update: about 4 years ago

In a statement, the Office of the Prime Minister has denied a story carried by today's Sunday Times."The front page story on The Sunday Times of Malta entitled 'Attempt to replace head of tax compliance unit' is an outright lie.

"The Head-TCU position is a headship position with a  regular 3 year definite contract, due to expire in this case in November 2016. The process follows the Public Administration Act and the Public Service Commission procedures which have been in place for years. This is a regular process which everyone in a headship position (Director upwards) undergoes regularly.

"The Sunday Times of Malta did not in any way seek comments from the Office of the Prime Minister. It resorts to unnamed sources to perpetrate a conjecture. This only continues to undermine the credibility of the story," the statement said.
