The delegation, sent by the European Parliament, is made up of seven Euro-Parlamanterians, including the Maltese MEP Roberta Metsola. This morning they met with Prime Minister Joseph Muscat at the Auberge de Castille and the Minister of Justice and later the President of Malta and the Attorney General.
Later the Euro-Parliamentary delegation will also meet with the Commissioner of Police, the Speaker and the Leader of the Opposition.
Meanwhile, Parliament has met with several government deputies to talk about the Government’s commitment to resolve the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia. The Speaker said that by agreement, the public is not being permitted to enter ‘the strangers gallery. ‘ Hearings may be followed via Parliament TV.
The Nationalist opposition is not take part in Parliamentary discussions after leaving yesterday’s sitting and said it would not be taking part in any activities where the Prime Minister is present, who was being perceived as illegitimate, after the latest developments in connection with investigations into the murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia. The opposition continues to put pressure on the prime minister to resign immediately in lieu of next month.
