Joe Gerada, who today chairs the board of the same agency, told fellow board members on Friday he did not know that others were affected like him because of missing national in- surance contributions. In an email seen by Malta- Today, Gerada offered board members an explanation to revelations made earlier by the UĦM's online news bulletin, Voice of the Workers about missing NI contributions. The report revealed how 400 employees of the Foundation for Social Welfare Services had missing NI contributions for the period between 2000 and 2007 to the tune of €10 million.
