UPDATED: PN Parliamentary group discusses developments in Daphne Caruana Galizia case
The Nationalist Party has announced that it will be taking part in tomorrow’s protest in Valletta.
The decision was taken once the Opposition Leader convened an urgent PN Parliamentary group to discuss the developments surrounding the assassination of Daphne Caruana Galizia and the arrest of Yorgen Fenech.
In a statement, the PN said that this meeting was convened as soon as Adrian Delia returned to Malta after cutting short the PPE Congress meeting in Croatia.
Dr Delia said that this was a very delicate moment which required prudence for justice to take its course. Dr Delia said however that political responsibility had to be shouldered and that PM Joseph Muscat had to stop dragging his feet and sack his Chief of Staff Keith Schembri and Minister Konrad Mizzi, whom he said had links to Yorgen Fenech’s company 17 Black.
The Parliamentary Group agreed that the fight for justice and against corruption had to continue unreservedly, and it was decided that the PN would therefore participate in tomorrow’s civil society protest in Valletta.
Meanwhile, when he was interviewed on Thursday evening on Net TV, Dr Delia said that the PM is not taking the decisions he needs to take, to remove those who are damaging the reputation of the country, and therefore he is complicit with them.
He added that with what is happening this Government is illegitimate, however at the same time he said this does not mean that the will of the majority of the people in the election should be overturned.
