Caruana reportedly resigned from these roles just a few days before Tonio Fenech appointed him as his consultant. Caruana's contract kicked off on 13 June, 2012.
The newspaper reports that while Caruana's annual salary amounted to €38,556, he enjoys an extra €28,917 in the form of a resettlement bonus, an allowance and to cover car expenses.
Sources who spoke to Illum said that Caruana, who also sits on the board of governors of the financial services promoters FinanceMalta, might have been eyeing the post of chairman of Mimcol, government's investment arm, and was appointed to the role of consultant to make up for the lost opportunity.
