Government will show that the European Parliament Committee is mistaken about Malta – PM

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat has stated that he will convince and show that part of the draft resolution on Malta by the European Parliament’s Civil Liberties Committee is incorrect.

Dr Muscat was referring to the draft resolution, which still has to be approved by the plenary session of the EU Parliament, calling on Malta to stop the citizenship and residence programme.

Questioned about this draft by journalists, the Prime Minister stated that if one looks at the original motion and at the one which has been presented, there has already been a change for the better. Dr Muscat added that he is still not satisfied with this draft, further stating that when he considers the damage to Malta by Maltese themselves, the draft is no surprise.

Dr Muscat stated that Government will not be arrogant in the face of this draft, but will try and convince and show that part of what is being stated in incorrect.

Dr Muscat also referred to the report by the committee of the British Parliament which alleges that prior to the 2013 election, the Prime Minister had met with officials of Strategic Communications Laboratories, which company had later been implicated in use of information from Facebook to influence elections in a number of countries.

Dr Muscat once again reiterated his denial of having met with officials of Strategic Communications Laboratories and Cambridge Analytica.

Dr Muscat insisted that he cannot contradict or produce evidence on a lie. He added that he had already passed through a similar experience regarding the Egrant company, and stated that for this reason it came as no surprise to him that someone had invented somthing like this.

The Prime Minister stated this when he was speaking to journalists after inaugurating the Marsascala primary school. The Prime Minister finally thanked the Church so that a plot of land adjoining the school will become a hall for the school.
