During yesterday’s parliamentary sitting, which was planned to address eco-contribution, Leader of the Opposition, Adrian Delia instead turned the debate to focus on the Power Station and the contract with Electrogas, the company which Yorgen Fenech was Director.
The sitting was ended halfway through as a request for more time by the Opposition was not accepted by the Speaker nor it seemed that it would be welcomed by the government. This quickly resulted in cries of ‘Shame, Shame’ from the Nationalist MPs, while outside protesters could be heard booing and whistling.
“The Prime Minister should never interfere in police work,” Delia said, reminding the Prime Minister that at the time when Edgar Galea Curmi was the Chief of Staff at the Office of PM Lawrence Gonzi, and had telephoned the Commissioner regarding the arrest of Cyrus Engerer’s father, Muscat had insisted on his resignation.
“This is the hour,” said the Leader of the Opposition referring to those protesting outside the Parliament building. “We have had five Police Commissioners,” Delia said, stating that the most pertinent was that of Michael Cassar who resigned on receiving the FIAU report which addressed the Panama companies which belonged to Keith Schembri and Konrad Mizzi.
