Press Statement dated 02/12/2018
This morning’s newspapers report state that Minister Konrad Mizzi and Keith Schembri are already, or are expected to be, part of the criminal investigation into 17 Black, and that Adrian Delia is part of a different money laundering investigation by the police.
We are the only party that tabled a motion of no confidence in Minister Konrad Mizzi.
We reiterate our call that the Prime Minister is duty-bound to suspend Keith Schembri.
The police investigations into the facts surrounding 17 Black should not be tainted with political interference.
This morning, Hon. Marlene Farrugia and I, as members of Parliament representing Partit Demokratiku, have written to the Leader of the Opposition Hon Dr Adrian Delia to shoulder political responsibility and to suspend himself from the Constitutional role of Leader of the Opposition.
We have always been and will remain in favour of clean politics and the highest standards in political life.
Malta deserves better.
