PM respects analysis by EU Parliament Delegation but does not agree with their report

In a comment made to the Times of Malta as a reaction to comments made by the Leader of the Opposition, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said that the members of the EU Parliament Delegation who wrote their report had already made up their minds what report to write before they arrived in Malta last November.

Asked whether he intended to remove the persons indicated in the Panama Papers as recommended by the Euro parliamentarians, Dr Muscat said while respecting their analysis he did not agree with the report and it is the Government that decides what has to be done. He said it would have been much better had the delegation visited Malta before the EU Parliament took the vote on the Rule of Law in Malta.

Dr Muscat said the report related the fact that Russian witness Maria Efimova is now stating she was not Daphne Caruana Galizia’s original source regarding Egrant allegations. He said in fact there was no source behind the stories alleged that Egrant belonged to his wife.
