Speaker has salary blocked in tax demand

Haresh Budhrani
GIBRALTAR The Speaker of th Gibraltar Parliament, Haresh Budhrani, has had his salary blocked in demand of payment of taxes, according to a report by GBC that aired on Tuesday night. The report claimed that the Treasury had been instructed to retain Budhrani's salary as Speaker in settlement of tax debts he allegedly incurred some time ago. The Speaker's response was that the report -and the leaked document from Commissioner for Income Tax from which the report was made- was 'not entirely accurate' when it, the document, was prepared. He accused the person who had leaked the document as a 'miscreant' and he would not legitimize it by commenting further. (Read the whole story on GibChronicle online.)
