The European Parliament’s Civil Liberties Committee approved with 40 votes in favour, seven against and six abstentions a draft of a resolution on Malta and Slovakkia.
Among others, the resolution draft which still has to be approved by an EP plenary session, requests Malta to stop the citizenship and residence programme.
The resolution also requests an independent inquiry into the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia and that the Government members withdraw the libel cases which were made against Mrs Caruana Galizia and her family.
The resolution calls for an investigation on Egrant and 17 Black companies and on suspicions on Government members in connection with these companies. The resolution also requested the Maltese Government to implement all the recommendations on the rule of law, made by the Venice Commission.
