MATTHEW AGIUS THE lawyer running a 17th century foundation to administer a series of Gozitan lands claimed by the heirs of a noblewoman, has filed a constitutional challenge to a Legal Notice that would see its controversial claim over large swathes of land in Gozo being cut off at the knees. In a constitutional application in the First Hall of the Civil Court last August, lawyer Patrick Valentino, in his capacity as rector of the Ab- bazia di Sant Antonio delli Navar- ra, called upon the government, the minister responsible for lands, and the Lands Registrar, to reinstate the foundation's title over parcels of land in Nadur, and declare a breach of its rights. ALEX AGIUS SALIBA MATTHEW VELLA ALMOST €1.2 billion in un- paid income tax is considered "uncollectable" in Malta, ac- cording to a National Audit Office analysis of tax arrears that says the government is now chasing over €422 million in taxes owing to the State. And the massive figure of ar- rears owing to the State grows exponentially when it comes to VAT, with over €4.5 billion left unpaid and at least 92% (€4.1bn) now considered to be not collectable by the VAT de- partment. The figure includes penalties and relative interest generated when a taxpayer fails to submit a VAT return by the due date. As reported in previous years, the highest instance of non-collectable taxes relates to that owing by self-employed individuals, with €621 million out of gross arrears of €772 million, or 80%, being deemed uncollectable.
