Rehab to discuss releasing CEO's salary at February meeting

The board also says they will take legal advice on statements by the Justice Minister.

THE BOARD OF the Rehab Group will meet in February to discuss whether or not to disclose the pay of CEO Angela Kerins.

At a three-hour meeting tonight, the group’s board discussed ongoing controversy at Rehab.

In a statement, the board said that there was a full agenda, but that the current legal case that they are bringing against the government over the charities lotteries compensation fund was raised, particularly the comments made by Justice Minister Alan Shatter.

“The Board is very concerned about this development and has asked the executive to take legal advice on the matter,” said a statement.

“The Board voiced its concern about misleading and inaccurate statements contained in certain media reports of recent days and has asked the executive to examine this matter further with a view to taking appropriate action where necessary.”

The statement added that a meeting will be held on 17 February, which will discuss whether or not to release Kerins’ salary, which was last put at over €230,000.

“It is the intention of the Board to make a full statement following the meeting on 17 February. Until this time the Board will be making no further statement on the matter and will continue, along with the executive, to oversee the important work of the Rehab Group in providing its services to people who require them and serving its customers in all of the fields of activity and jurisdictions in which it works.”
